Today my brother Matthew Swartz successfully performed the Heimlich Maneuver on an unnamed nine year old girl with an fully obstructed windpipe, dislodging the obstruction with a loud ‘pop’  and saving the girl’s life. The incident took place at a Pumpkin Patch in Virginia.

Klondike has not claimed credit for training Matt in the maneuver, which is good because he didn’t, but like all of us is very, very proud of Matt for his skills and presence of mind.
