Seguin PD Officer saves a man's life at a local restaurant

(Seguin) -- A Seguin Police Officer is continuing to be recognized as a hero after springing into action at a local restaurant.
 
Cpl. John Crady with the Seguin Police Department is being applauded today for helping a man who was choking at the 1838 Grille on Friday afternoon.

Tanya Brown, public information officer for the Seguin PD, say Crady, reportedly "came out nowhere and quickly began performing the Heimlich maneuver to dislodge the food."
Crady, who had just stopped by for a to-go order, says he was actually on his way out the door when he realized the emergency.
 
"After I paid, I was speaking with the owner and one of the manager/waitresses ran up to me and advised me that there was a gentleman that was choking on some lunch that he was having. So, I ran over to the gentleman and there was already another guy who was with him at the table who was trying to do the Heimlich maneuver and he wasn't able to dislodge the food so I was able to move him out of the way and proceed on with the Heimlich maneuver and after about two thrusts, I was able to clear it out of his airway,' said Crady.
 
Crady says he credits his heroic efforts to some good and valuable training.
 
"I just happened to be at the right place with the right training to fix the problem that was on hand and I was glad that I was able to help the gentleman out," said Crady.
 
Brown says the police department was made aware of Crady's life saving efforts thanks to a witness at the restaurant. She says he was "thankful that the officer was there and reacted so quickly to the situation."
