In a scene right out of a really bad movie, Clint Eastwood saved the life of PGA Tour director Steve John on Wednesday night. They were enjoying a pre-tournament dinner at the Monterey Conference Center when John started choking on a piece of cheese and Eastwood came to the rescue by giving him the Heimlich maneuver. Whaaaaaat!
From the Arizona Daily Star:
“I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn’t work,” John said Friday. “I was looking at him and couldn’t breathe. He recognized it immediately and saved my life.”
Oh snap, get it Clint! I love that he knows how to properly perform the Heimlich – it’s so easy to do it wrong and just bust somebody’s ribs than actually save them from choking. I also love that he sprung into action right away like a damn superhero. So funny – and awesome!
Sometimes there are real heroes in life, and Clint Eastwood is one of them. (Yes, I’m being a bit sarcastic, but I am serious that I think it’s awesome.)
