Firefighter Groom Saves Wedding Guest Who Was Choking
This wedding was one nobody will ever forget.
Cody Campbell, a firefighter in California’s Los Angeles County, saved the day when a guest at his wedding started choking during the best man toast.
Craig Campbell, Cody’s father and best man, who serves as the fire captain in Orange County, set the scene:
At the time I was giving my toast about how proud I was that he was a firefighter, we overheard a couple of people yell, ‘Oh my God! She’s choking.'”
Quicker than you can say, “I do,” Cody jumped up and rushed to the woman’s aid:
Basically, I just grabbed her and I kicked the chair out of the way, found her navel, rolled up and I just started doing the Heimlich as hard as I could and I did it about five times.”
Some people thought it was a show, but it was all too real.
After playing the role of hero, Cody said everything went back to normal and he even saw the woman on the dance floor.
