For every choking-related death, an estimated 110 children are treated in hospital emergency departments for non-fatal choking.[Ref:43]

The character played by Richard Dreyfuss can still cough and therefore has only PARTIAL airway obstruction. Also, this clip does NOT show the proper Heimlich maneuver technique!
