Texas Congressman Pete Gallego Saves Choking Child on Airplane

He's not just the only Democratic incumbent in Texas with a tough race this year, he's also a hero.

Democratic Congressman Pete Gallego (TX-23) was flying back to Alpine on Friday night when the child sitting next to him began choking on a chicken nugget.

Gallego was able to clear the child's airway, much to his mother's relief. However, I wouldn't recommend the Heimlich as a method of direct voter contact other than when the situation demands it.

The child's mother sent her thanks to the Congressman:

@RepPeteGallego @petegallego saved my son last night as he was choking on our flight home! So thankful for his quick reaction!
