yankee-fan-does-heimlich-cbs.jpgArmy medic John Stone was enjoying a Yankee game Wednesday when he and his brother spotted a commotion ten rows in front of them: A woman was choking. Fans nearby weren’t succeeding in their efforts to do the Heimlich maneuver so John stepped in and did it properly.

The Yankees quickly moved Stone, an Iraq veteran, and his brother, who’s on leave from serving in Afghanistan, and his brother’s girlfriend down to the front row — $1,250 dollar seats, paid for food and drinks, and gave them a bag filled with team goodies.

WATCH the video below, which teaches the maneuver, or read the story at CBS.
