Dashcam video: Officer saves choking woman’s life

What started off as a routine traffic stop, ended up saving the life of a Michigan woman.

According to our sister station WXMI, Officer Jason Gates pulled over a driver for a red light violation.

However, when he walked up to the car, he realized she was in trouble. Dash cam video from the incident shows Officer Gates administrating several back blows before pulling the woman from her car and administrating the Heimlich maneuver.

Within a few seconds, the food was dislodged, and the woman immediately began to cry and hug Officer Gates, thanking him, something he says he did not expect.

“I’m just glad I was there and it worked.”

The woman did not get a ticket.
