Self Inflicted Heimlich With Airbag

A motorist in Boise found a unique way to administer the Heimlich maneuver–she crashed head-on into another vehicle Thursday and deployed the airbag on herself.

KTVB news reported, the female driver of the truck was headed eastbound on Overland at Hummel Dr. when she began to choke of a piece of food. She pulled into the turn lane and started to turn left at Hummel Road when she collided with the van. She told police that the impact of the air bag dislodged the food from her throat.
