ROCKAWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - An off-duty New Jersey State Police trooper helped save a man from choking on Sunday.
Trooper Dennis Palaia noticed a man who was having difficulty breathing and performed the Heimlich maneuver on him at a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant, according to a New Jersey State Police Facebook video.
Palaia wrapped his hands around the man and performed four abdominal thrusts, which cleared his airway. The man thanked Palaia for his efforts.
