It was a regular Sunday crowd at Rib City at Grant Station when Tara Swiderski went from being a waitress to lifesaver. The restaurant's surveillance video shows Swiderski doing the Heimlich maneuver. She first learned the maneuver as a teen lifeguard then again as a flight attendant.
Swiderski had a refresher course when she started working at Rib City about four years ago. "I heard someone calling my name, 'Tara help', so I dropped everything and I knew right away when you stop coughing and cannot talk something is lodge definitely stopped breathing for about a minute," Swiderski said.
