COOPERSTOWN – Working in the kitchen at Mel’s at 22 late last week, Brian Wrubleski got the word: “Somebody’s choking.”
One waitperson had already attempted the Heimlich maneuver, he was told.
Walking out onto the restaurant floor, Wrubleski saw a second waitperson was performing the maneuver on a customer who, with a morsel trapped in his windpipe, had fallen out his chair in the restaurant’s southeast corner.
