Lab Man Saves Boy

Romesh Sood

Romesh Sood, Neutrino beam line crew chief, is a testimonial for Fermilab safety classes. While eating at an Oak Park Burger King, he and his wife noticed a family group across the dining room. A boy, about 12 years old, was choking on a piece of food caught in his windpipe. His mother was trying unsuccessfully to remove the obstruction. Sood came to the rescue. Performing the "Heimlich maneuver," he ejected the food from the boy's windpipe by popping it out like a cork from a bottle. Sood had learned the method three days before in a class taught by Charles Bonham, safety supervisor and Edward Brezina, safety engineer. Well done to all concerned.
