Cafeteria food service workersEmily Cody is a Food Service Production Assistant at L.C. Swain Middle School. Back in September, she was covering in the manager's absence when she noticed that one of her co-workers Silvana Messina began to collapse. Emily ran over to her and realized that Silvana was choking.

Emily proceeded to do the Heimlich Maneuver and her efforts paid off, as doing the Maneuver dislodged the piece of gum Silvana was choking on. Emily maintained her composure throughout the entire ordeal and was able to stabilize the work atmosphere while they were short-staffed. Check out the video below as the two women describe the ordeal.
