Frazier to the rescue
Reds infielder Todd Frazier certainly had an interesting meal at
lunchtime on Tuesday dinner on Monday. Forget what he ate…Frazier saved a man’s life using the Heimlich Maneuver while at a downtown Pittsburgh restaurant with teammate Ryan Ludwick.
“I was talking to him and I see it out of the corner of my eye,” Frazier explained. “I said ‘I think that dude is choking over there.’ He was a little obese and there were two women side-by-side trying to give him the Heimlich. [Ludwick] said get over there because I was the closest one. So I went over there and was yelling at them to get out of the way. They did and I gave two pumps and it came out.”
The man had eaten a very large bite of steak, apparently.
“It was a big fat piece too, it was pretty insane,” Frazier said. “It was a good 30 seconds they were trying at least.
“He paid for our lunch, which he didn’t have to do and said thanks a couple of times. It was pretty surreal. I have never done that before.”
