Choking woman narrowly escapes brush with death

St. Paul, MN, Elway Station City Carrier Assistant Kirsten Levisen Lloyd

When St. Paul, MN, Elway Station City Carrier Assistant Kirsten Levisen Lloyd approached a home along her route, she saw a customer move toward the front door from inside. While Lloyd initially thought the customer sought to collect her mail, the situation turned out to be far more urgent in nature.

As Lloyd looked up at the customer, she saw that her lips were blue and she was choking on an object. Without hesitation, Lloyd opened the door, patted her on the back, and began performing the Heimlich maneuver. After five abdominal thrusts, the object dislodged and the woman began breathing normally.

Later on when paramedics arrived, they told Lloyd she should be paid double for the day because she did their job as well as her own.
