With the amount of food and excitement consumed at sporting event, the number of people that choke at these events must be high.
However, this past Saturday (7/12) in San Francisco, the Giants were taking on the Nationals when the father of one of the Nats players actually spotted someone choking.
Luckily, he knew how to do the Heimlich Maneuver and helped this unfortunate fan.
Ross, dad of veteran pitchers Joe and Tyson Ross, performed the Heimlich maneuver on a choking fan during a game between the Giants and Washington Nationals, dislodging bits of a hot dog to clear the woman's airways.
Ross is a pediatrician at Stanford Hospital. He was at the park to see Washington, for whom Joe Ross plays. Tyson Ross is a right-hander with theTexas Rangers.
Willie Ross was watching the game in a lower box and wearing a red Nationals hat when he noticed the female fan choking. Relying on his training in ER medicine, Ross hustled over to check on the fan, who was unable to talk.
Ross helped dislodge the food that was trapped in the woman's throat with three hard thrusts on her stomach and was cheered afterward by fans sitting nearby.
What a hero!
