Senator Claire McCaskill Suffers Cracked Rib After Heimlich Maneuver

Missouri US Senator Claire McCaskill suffered a cracked rib last Thursday after West Virginia US Senator Joe Manchin performed the Heimlich maneuver on her when she began choking.  The action happened during a luncheon for Senate Democrats.  Manchin dislodged the blockage in McCaskill’s throat, but cracked her rib in the process.  McCaskill says she is really greatful to Manchin and being sore for a couple of weeks is no big deal.
