Near Death from Choking

An elderly woman nearly choked to death whilst eating in a chiringuito in Almuñécar this weekend.

She had been eating with her family there when some food caught in her throat and she was unable to dislodge it.

Somebody present decided to ask for help from the lifeguards on duty on that beach, Playa de San Cristóbal, as the lookout installations was nearby.

Within moments one of the life guards arrived and applied the Heimlich Manoeuvre to free the obstruction in her throat, which was successful and saved her life.

The incident occurred around 13.30h on Saturday.
