Clint Eastwood saves man from choking to death

'Dirty Harry' director performed the Heimlich manoeuvre on the man at golfing event

Clint Eastwood saved a man from chocking to death at a golf event recently.

According to the Carmel Pine Cone, the Dirty Harry actor spotted Steve John, director of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament, chocking and performed the Heimlich manoeuvre on him.

“Clint saved my life,” said Steve John. “A piece of cheese went in my mouth, and suddenly I couldn’t breathe. It was as bad as it could have been. It was as bad as it could have been. Clint came up behind me, and he knew exactly what to do.”

The Oscar-winning actor and director explained how he rushed to John’s rescue. He said: “I looked into his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes. It looked bad.”

He continued: “I gave him three good jolts, and that got it out. And then I made him drink a big glass of water with a bunch of lemon squeezed in it.”

Clint Eastwood is currently working on Jersey Boys, a musical biography about the Four Seasons.
