Hollywood star Clint Eastwood saves man from choking

Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood has been credited with saving the life of a golf tournament director in California who was choking on a piece of cheese.


Steve John says that Hollywood star Clint Eastwood saved his life by his quick thinking

"Clint saved my life," said Steve John, director of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament.

The actor reportedly saw that Mr John was in difficulty and performed the Heimlich manoeuvre on him.

The technique requires a rescuer to carry out abdominal thrusts on a choke victim to dislodge the blockage.

"Suddenly, I couldn't breathe. It was as bad as it could have been," Mr John said of the incident at a drinks reception in Carmel-by-the-Sea on Wednesday.

"Clint came up behind me, and he knew exactly what to do."

The award-winning actor and director told the Carmel Pine Cone that he noticed Mr John had "that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes".

Mr Eastwood, 83, moved behind Mr John and carried out the manoeuvre.

"I gave him three good jolts, and that got it out," he said.

"And then I made him drink a big glass of water with a bunch of lemon squeezed in it."

Mr Eastwood, famous for his roles in Westerns and the Dirty Harry detective films, said he had performed the manoeuvre before, but only "to practice".

Quite remarkable for a man who sees invisible people sitting on chairs. It must have made his day.

Wow - the guy has had a 50+ year career in virtually every aspect of film making and has reached the pinnacle of success no matter how one measures it.  Then, at age 83 he jumps up and saves a guy's life and the best you can do is trot out a single speech he made at the most recent Republican convention with which to use to generate snappy comments.

This is one tough crowd.

P.S.  I just watched his latest, The Trouble with the Curve and thought it was a good one.  I liked it!

Just a bit of fun, Al.

Not tough at all alfred - i think he's great - watch  the clip it's funny - enjoy

Clint thought it would entertain the crowd if he pretended to have a talk with Pres. Obama (played by an empty chair). Here are the rambling doddering highlights of their "discussion."
