“Seat-belt Heimlich” saves Oregon man

‘Steven Earp, 48, was eating a fast-food sandwich Wednesday morning, said police Sgt. Doug Mozan.

Earp choked and blacked out. His 1997 Honda sedan hit a parked car. After the wreck, Earp came to.

Mozan attributed his revival to a “seat-belt-induced Heimlich maneuver.”

Witnesses told police Earp got out of his car, and they asked if he was OK.

“No, I’m not,” he said, and collapsed again.’
