So I am at the usual Thursday range meetup/hangout/Bullseye shoot/bitchfest….
One of the guys, Bob, is eating Gummy Bears. He has one go down the wrong pipe and starts coughing, trying to get it out of his trachea. He’s not choking, but he does have an airway restriction. He’s still able to breath, but not fully.
He doesn’t want me to do the Heimlich maneuver (and honestly, he’s a really
fat large dude, not sure I could do it on a guy that big around), so we all watched him carefully until he finally coughed up the Gummi Bear. .
He thanks us for the concern, and we all go back to what we were doing before
We told him that if he had died we were just gonna tell everyone that he was “killed by a bear” and leave it at that…..
