KING Reporter Alex Rozier was at a dinner party when he chocked on a piece of meat.
He started turning blue and a co-worker had to step in with the Heimlich maneuver and save him.
Rozier went on the air and online to talk about his close call with death and urged people to learn how to do CPR/Heimlich.
He posted the video on his Twitter, although he did not pin the story at the top of his Twitter. That spot is still reserved for a June 2018 post about him winning an RTDNA award.
Because, let’s be honest, winning a Murrow award is much more important than saving a life. Right?
Here’s his “all about me dying” post on Twitter.
I could have died this weekend.— Alex Rozier (@AlexRozierK5) March 6, 2019
I was choking. I could not breathe at all.
Thankfully @TedLandK5 saved my life. Seriously.
Hopefully my scare will help others. Please consider taking a @RedCross CPR/Heimlich course.
