96-Year Old Inventor of the Heimlich Maneuver Used His Own Invention to Save a Choking Woman’s life
Monday might not have been the first time Dr. Henry Heimlich performed his namesake medical procedure on a live choking victim.
But the woman who survived the incident said she’s thankful the 96-year-old Cincinnati resident sprung into action on her behalf.
Heimlich told The Enquirer Thursday his encounter with Patty Ris at the Deupree House senior living facility, where they both live, was the first time he ever performed it on a person needing immediate aid.
