The Heimlich Manoeuvre

I was reading the guardian food blog again today, my new favourite food blog (can you tell I am in Canberra alone trying to finish my thesis?) and I was reminded by this article on the Heimlich Manoeuvre about Eddie Izzard's comedic sketch on it. It's an oldie but a goodie

I tried to find some stats on the number of people who die each year from choking on food but all I discovered is that in Britain

"People who live in Morpeth and St Albans East are more likely to die of food choking than in other parts of the country"

and that in Salt Lake Valley 2800 people, mostly children, die from choking per year.

Be careful out there folks
