A North Carolina woman is getting national attention for her quick thinking that saved a fellow diner’s life.
It happened last week south of Raleigh. Connor Stephenson was at a Lillington, North Carolina sports bar when she noticed a woman choking.
Cynthia Munday told Ralegh television station WTVD she just remembers not being able to breathe and then passing out. A restaurant video camera caught the dramatic scene when Stephenson jumped into action, performing the Heimlich maneuver on Munday and dislodging the food that was blocking her airway.

Both women say they hope their story will encourage others to learn basic lifesaving skills.
