Lawmaker Saves Choking Man

State Representative Brian Renegar of McAlester was awarded a Governor's commendation Tuesday for saving the life of an elderly man who was choking on a piece of meat at a recent banquet in Oklahoma City. Renegar was sitting next to the man and performed the Heimlich Maneuver and the man recovered. Renegar is a veterinarian and says he learned the Heimlich Maneuver during a health and safety course he took while attending Northeastern State University in Tahlequah. (State Capitol Photo.)
