Waitress training to be nurse saves choking man

Written by Muleskinner Staff

(ARNOLD, Mo., AP) — A waitress at a suburban St. Louis Denny’s restaurant is being called a hero for saving the life of a choking man.
KMOV-TV (http://bit.ly/2bpSyI5 ) reports that Amanda Zamudio waits tables but also attends night classes, nearing her nursing degree. Earlier this month, a man eating at the Denny’s in Arnold, Missouri, choked on his food.
The man stood up and Zamudio positioned herself behind him, used the Heimlich maneuver to give him one big thrust, and the food became dislodged.
Denny’s CEO John C. Miller heard about the action and gave Zamudio an award for her action.
