Dr Heimlich: 'Piece of meat came out and she started breathing'

Dr Henry Heimlich has used the Heimlich manoeuvre to save a choking woman at his retirement home.

He dislodged a piece of hamburger from the 87-year-old woman's airway.

Heimlich said: "After three compressions this piece of meat came out she just started breathing".
