Mr. Heimlich, the inventor of a way to prevent people from choking to death, has just died at the age of 96.


In reading about him, I learned that his method saved Ronald Reagan in 1976. At that time, Mr. Reagan was in a political campaign. Aboard his plane, he started choking on some peanuts.
An aide used the Heimlich Maneuver to save his life.

A few years ago, an airplane passenger was choking. There was a doctor aboard, but he did not use the Heimlich Maneuver. Nor he did use a small knife to make a cut in the exact right spot to allow breathing. The passenger died.

I have used the Heimlick maneuver many times. I wonder how many people have been saved by same.
