POLICE OFFICER, CHRIS SCHALK. HIS K-9 PARTNER, IRO, IS IN THE

SUNDAY, BUT IT DIDN’T MATTER. THE OFFICER HAD EVERYTHING UNDER
CONTROL. HE SAYS WHEN HE WENT INTO THE
DINING ROOM INSIDE THIS GOLDEN
CORRAL RESTAURANT, HE SAW AN
ELDERLY WOMAN CHOKING ON A PIECE
OF BROCCOLI, AND MEMBERS OF HER
FAMILY NEARBY, PANICKING, BUT HE WAS FOCUSED.>>I DIDN’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT,
BECAUSE THEY’RE SCREAMING,
“SHE’S NOT BREATHING, SHE’S NOT
BREATHING”
— SHE’S NOT BREATHING.”
ANGELA: HE SAYS SOMEONE IN THE RESTAURANT WAS HELPING THE
WOMAN, AND AS SOON AS HE GOT TO
HER, HE TOOK OVER AND PERFORMED
THE HEIMLICH MANEUVER. DO ON THE JOB. WE REALLY DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT
IT, WE JUST ACT. IT ALL GOES BACK TO THE
TRAINING, ALL THE TRAINING THAT
WE GET FOR DOING THIS AND WHAT
WE GET FROM OUR DEPARTMENT. YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO THINK,
YOU JUST ACT. ANGELA: AND AFTER ABOUT THREE OR
FOUR ABDOMINAL THRUSTS, THE
BROCCOLI FLEW OUT OF HER MOUTH. HE ENCOURAGES EVERYONE TO TAKE A
BASIS LIFE SAVING COURSE. — BASIC LIFE SAVING COURSE.>>YOU LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE
THINGS HAPPEN, SO I THINK IT’S
IMPORTANT FOR MORE PEOPLE THAN
LESS TO HAVE THOSE BASIC LIFE
SAVING MEASURES, YEAH, ’CAUSE
