Child performed Heimlich maneuver on best friend; Mayor presents proclamation in observance of “National Heimlich Maneuver Day”

Earlier this month, Kori’s best friend and classmate at Bowser Elementary School began choking on a piece of food. Remembering the technique that she learned from her parents, Kori quickly began to perform three to four thrusts to her classmate’s chest until the food expelled. 

“I’m proud because of the quick thinking; she snapped right into it,” said Kiana Scott, Kori’s mother. “I am overjoyed. Words cannot express how happy and proud I am.”

Created by Dr. Henry J. Heimlich in 1974, the life-saving procedure is observed on thee first of June each year. According to the American Red Cross, choking causes over 3,000 deaths per year. Proper training and knowledge of the Heimlich maneuver may help to save a person’s life.
