EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A seat belt has saved a driver in Oregon, but not in the usual way. Police say Steven Earp's seat belt performed a sort of Heimlich maneuver that saved him from choking. Earp was eating a fast-food sandwich while driving Wednesday morning when he choked and blacked out. His car hit a parked car. After the wreck, Earp came to. Police attribute his revival to a "seat-belt-induced Heimlich maneuver." Police says it was "extremely lucky" that Earp "didn't choke to death or take anyone else with him." They say the best way to enjoy a breakfast sandwich is to pull off the road.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************

Ok... add another point in the "Seat Belts save lives" educational campaign...
