PHOENIX (AP) -
A Texas congressman who was choking on a piece of popcorn is thanking a fellow Republican from Arizona and a House staffer who is also a doctor for stepping in to help.
Rep. Ted Poe's spokeswoman says the five-term congressman from the 2nd District was eating dinner at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington Thursday when he began choking. Arizona Rep. Matt Salmon was eating nearby and he and another bystander jumped into action and began doing the Heimlich maneuver to clear Poe's airway.
Poe spokeswoman Shaylyn Hynes says they were unsuccessful and called for a doctor. That's when GOP House staffer Dr. Nick Muzin jumped in. As Salmon kept trying to dislodge the popcorn with strong slaps to the back, Muzin did the Heimlich maneuver again and was successful.
