Trooper Renders Aid to Choking Victim at Local Restaurant

An Indiana State Trooper was in the right place at the right time when a woman choked on her food.
Trooper Brad Miller and several other law enforcement officers were enjoying lunch at Tequilas Mexican Restaurant located at 408 Southwind Plaza, Mt. Vernon.

A middle aged woman sitting in a booth next to Miller and the other police officers stood up and grabbed her throat, which is the universal sign that the person is choking.

Trooper Miller asked the woman if she was choking and she nodded her head yes. Miller immediately placed his arms around the choking woman and administered several abdominal thrusts.

Within a few seconds, the food was dislodged and she was able to breathe again. 


Trooper Miller said that he knew the woman was in trouble when he saw her grabbing her throat. “I administered about five abdominal thrust before the object was dislodged and she was able to breathe again,” said Miller.
