Woody Allen saves friend from choking while dining at New York City restaurant

Speaking to Page Six on Monday, Andrew Stein reported that the Annie Hall director stepped in and performed the Heimlich manoeuvre when he began "choking on a piece of pork" while dining at Caravaggio on the Upper East Side last month. "I am embarrassed to say it, but Woody actually saved my life.” "I normally order fish, but this time I went for the pork, and soon after we started to eat, a piece of the meat became lodged in my throat and I was struggling to breathe.”
