    Crashing saves trucker's life

    Crashing saves trucker's life

    A US truck driver may have saved his own life with an unintentional and very elaborate Heimlich manoeuvre.

    Police say 55-year-old Richard Paylor, from Pennsylvania, was eating an apple as he drove on a busy highway when he began choking.

    Authorities said Paylor then lost consciousness and crashed through a concrete median strip.

    Investigators believe the apple was dislodged when Paylor smacked his chest against the steering wheel.

    Initially sceptical, police recovered a chunk of apple from the smashed dashboard.
    Doctors backed up their conclusion that the accident dislodged the offending fruit.

    Well I can say I have never had anything like that happen to me. Poor guy probably hit a bad bump in the road at the same time he took a bite out of the apple.

    Glad he didn't hit any cars.
