Clint Eastwood is 83 years old. The dude pictured below is 205 pounds. He was choking on a piece of cheese while sitting at a table with Dirty Harry earlier this week. Clint had never performed the Heimlich maneuver in his entire life. Clint was at a golf event in Monterey, CA at a golf tourney this week when he noticed the tournament director — Steven John — choking and not able to breathe. Clint told a local paper “I looked in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes. It looked bad.”
When it looks bad, some people cower and shy away. But you know the Man with No Name would step up and do whatever needed to be done. Clint came up from behind the man, bearhugged him and threw him up in the air 3 times. The hunk of cheese flew out of the dude’s mouth. “Clint saved my life,” John told the local paper, describing how the 83-year-old actor/director came up behind him, lifted him off the ground and performed the lifesaving maneuver. “I gave him three good jolts, and that got it out,” Eastwood said, adding that he had never performed the Heimlich maneuver before.
Reports that Clint asked him if he felt lucky before dislodging the cheese were unconfirmed.
Most 82 year old men have a hard time taking a piss. Clint Eastwood doesn’t just play tough guys. He is a real tough guy. After the incident, while pictures were being taken, everyone said CHEESE!!!
Steve John felt lucky.
