Heimlich Hero in the Slope

Ahem ... for real.

The Brooklyn Paper has a story about the manager of Romy’s Nails in Park Slope, Galo Aguda, using the Heimlich maneuver to save a 7-year-old girl, Isabella Schlachet, who was choking on a butterscotch candy. The paper also includes a refresher course on the 37-year-old technique — something to think about, especially with Halloween around the corner. [Brooklyn Paper]
