179 Bodycam Shows Deputy Save Boy From Choking On a Quarter
An Oklahoma deputy saved a 3-year-old boy who was choking on a quarter. Deputy William Wheeler saw a woman Friday waving for help outside of a car wash after she thought her son had swallowed a sucker. Body cam video captured Victoria Terrill was terrified as her son Chaz was choking on something. "You know I was panicking, and it sucks that I didn't know what to do," she said Tuesday. Wheeler drove by where they had stopped, and he knew exactly what to do. After pounding him three times on the back, a quarter flew out of the boy's mouth. "You OK, buddy?" Wheeler asked the boy. Terrill said she's forever thankful the deputy was there. "He literally was like a guardian angel," she said. "He just happened to be going by at the exact time I needed him." Terrill said she plans to learn the Heimlich maneuver to avoid future accidents.
