BREAKING!

The surgeon who created the life-saving “Heimlich maneuver” for choking victims has died at the age of 96 years old.

The great Dr. Henry Heimlich died early Saturday at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati. His son, Phil, says he suffered a heart attack earlier in the week.

Heimlich was director of surgery at Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati in 1974 when he devised the treatment for choking victims that made his name a household word, FOX reports.

Rescuers using the procedure abruptly squeeze a victim’s abdomen, pushing in and above the navel with the fist to create a flow of air from the lungs. That flow of air then can push objects out of the windpipe and prevent suffocation.

The Wilmington, Delaware, native estimated the maneuver had saved the lives of thousands of choking victims in the United States alone.

Rest in peace brother. You will never be forgotten…

TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
