Clint Eastwood didn't let his inexperience with the Heimlich maneuver stop him from saving a man's life the other day.
The one-time Dirty Harry was at a golf event in Monterey, California last week when he noticed the tournament director, Steven John, choking. Clint -- who had never performed the Heimlich before -- told a local paper, "I looked in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes. It looked bad."
Fortunately, the acting legend rushed to action and saved the day. Steven said, "I can’t believe I’m 202 pounds and he threw me up in the air three times." Clint, by the way, is 83 years old.
Thank you so much for stopping by my page for a visit! For those of you new to WMUS, I'll give you a little bit of insight into who Mark Dixon is. For those of you who have been around for some time, you pretty much know everything about me. My life is pretty much an open book.
I've come by my career in broadcasting honestly, having grown up in Kalamazoo as a son of a radio disc jockey. My father was a DJ at WKZO and was the long time "voice" of TV Channel 3 (WKZO, currently WWMT). Years later, my career in radio began in 1978 in the small town of Ottawa, Ohio. From there I had a short stint in Lima, Ohio. Since 1988 my family has called WMUS and West Michigan home.
My interests are bicycling, deer and turkey hunting, bowling, golf, and computers (I've become quite a geek late in life.). I also enjoyed coaching my son in soccer when he went to Fruitport
You probably know that I'm not shy about bragging and talking about my grandkids, Katelyn and Brendan on the air either!
