A driver choking on a piece of chewing gum while travelling on a highway in Texas was saved by a police officer on Saturday, 13 January.
Officer Chad Stevens of Mansfield Police Department was driving on Interstate 20 near Fort Worth when he saw a driver with hazard lights on.
As the officer pulled up behind the car, a woman got out as she was choking.
Mr Stevens used the Heimlich manoeuvre to save the woman.
“Somebody swerved in front of me and I got scared... I had my hazards on for like 15 minutes just trying to breathe through the gum," the woman said.
