Amherst police may think they’ve seen everything, but they’ve now arrested a 68-year-old woman accused of trying to stop someone from performing the Heimlich maneuver on a man in a crowded Niagara Falls Boulevard restaurant.
The incident occurred June 18, a Saturday night, when a 43-year-old man was choking and someone began to perform the Heimlich maneuver on him.
“Leave him alone. Let him die,” the woman reportedly yelled out, according to police reports.
She then allegedly tried to grab the phone from a restaurant employee who was calling 911, police said.
Unfortunately, her plans were thwarted; the guy was fine by the time EMTs showed up.
