Sometimes, things go down the wrong pipe. And when that happens, people start choking. It can be a pretty scary experience for everyone involved, but it doesn't have to be if you know the Heimlich manuever. We compiled a quick guide to properly dislodging all sorts of weird food from strangers' guts with some help from The Mayo Clinic below. Educate yourself, and one day you could become a restaurant hero.
Alright, so first off, you should get someone to alert medical authorities in case the situation gets dire. And before you even get to all the Heimliching, make sure you let the person choking know what you're about to do. They're already pretty freaked out by what's happening, and liable to get even more anxious if a stranger starts charging for their belly with no warning.
