Reds rookie Todd Frazier saves choking man in Pittsburgh

Forget whatever he does in Tuesday's game. The Reds' Todd Frazier is your hero of the day.

The Reds rookie used the Heimlich Maneuver to save a man's life at a Pittsburgh restaurant on Tuesday.

From's Mark Sheldon:
"I was talking to [teammate Ryan Ludwick] and I see it out of the corner of my eye,” Frazier explained. “I said ‘I think that dude is choking over there.' He was a little obese and there were two women side-by-side trying to give him the Heimlich. [Ludwick] said get over there because I was the closest one. So I went over there and was yelling at them to get out of the way. They did and I gave two pumps and it came out.”

The man had eaten a very large bite of steak, apparently.

“It was a big fat piece too, it was pretty insane,” Frazier said. “It was a good 30 seconds they were trying at least.

“He paid for our lunch, which he didn't have to do and said thanks a couple of times. It was pretty surreal. I have never done that before.”
Pirates fans, if you're at the game Tuesday, make sure you give Frazier a standing ovation, no matter what uniform he's wearing.
