The woman who saved his life, Ticresha Cox, has been a Love's employee for just over two weeks.

These things practically write themselves.

Did I read this right?
He passed out and nobody did anything?  Or is the article missing the most important details and the whole purpose of the story?

If this had been at a Truckstop of America stop, the employees would have just rolled him in to the tall grass out behind truck parking. The lot lizards feed on him and make sexy outfits out of his skin. It's the circle of life.

So, you asked God to do something, he didn't, and then you stepped in. Got it.

That was difficult for me to read. I had the same thing happen to me, choked on a bit of food, woke up in an ambulance, lucky to be alive. Don't remember any of it, thank goodness. Apparently I was close enough to the other side that...my bowels acted accordingly.

Excellent job Ticresha.

That woman performed a near perfect abdominal thrust (formally known as the Heimlich maneuver until  trademarks and legal bullshiat stopped the industry from using the name)  to dislodge the food.

My dad saved someone with the Heimlich on a cruise ship a couple decades ago; he had to vanish afterward because he was an MD and not covered by good Samaritan laws and didn't want to get sued if he'd cracked a rib or something.

It often ain't pretty when it works but it works well.

In the video she said there was no one else in the store.

I was alone in my house and started to choke on food and in a panic dove in my best WWE imitation and slammed my stomach on the arm of my couch.  PLUH out came the food.

I was shaking for a good half hour after.

You kinda have to watch the video for it to make sense. The article is just a transcription of the video.

Apparently folks tried Heimlich, but bit of steak was lodged in such a way that it didn't move.

Public service announcement: don't eat and suddenly laugh. Doesn't end well.

a couple months ago I had to Heimlich one of my kids.  I needed a couple minutes after that to just sit on the floor and not pass out myself...

Yeah, that's farking scary.  I was on high alert for any kind of choking sounds for a long time after that happened to my son.

*blink* *blink*

I don't get it.

=====================

I worked at Love's for around six months in the early 1990's not long after graduating from college. The country was going through a minor recession and it was the only gig I could get at that time.

As far as shiat minimum wage jobs go, I could have done vastly worse. Corporate HQ (Mr. Love himself, mainly) made damn sure that its store managers were carefully selected and trained to treat the workers with dignity and respect.

Last time I chatted up a Love's employee he mentioned their starting pay these days is over $12 an hour.

as tradition for opening weekend of deer season, a big pot of beef stew or chili is made where my family hunts. My rather large uncle and my dad got there a day before everyone else, so my uncle got started on making beef stew while my dad was unloading gear and supplies for the weekend. Later on, the two sat down to eat. Well, my uncle being a man of large appetite, did not cut the stew meat in to smaller manageable chunks to cook and eat. While eating, my uncle began to choke. My dad realized what was happening, and proceeded to use the Heimlich maneuver but could not wrap his arms around my uncle's stomach. Panicking, dad began slamming my uncle stomach first into the back rest of a chair until a huge chunk of meat shot from his mouth with a greasy splat on the floor. This was many moons ago, so my dad took a Polaroid* of the meat chunk to show everybody who later arrived. It was the only kill that weekend.

*only instant photographs back in the day for you youngins'
