He’s still got it!

The 96-year-old inventor of the Heimlich manoeuvre has used the technique himself to save a choking woman at his retirement home. It is thought to be only the second time Dr Henry Heimlich has used it in an emergency. He dislodged a piece of hamburger from the 87-year-old woman’s airway, staff at Deupree House in Cincinnati said.

Dr Heimlich said it made him appreciate how wonderful it had been “to be able to save all those lives”.
