EL PASO - Lunchtime nearly turned tragic at Henderson Middle School Monday.
But a quick-thinking administrator saved a student from choking on some food.
Assistant Principal Larry Munoz saw the 6th grader turning red and tearing up. That's when he says his instincts took over. He performed the Heimlich Maneuver until the boy's throat cleared of a lodged corn dog. The student says he's thankful Munoz got to him in time.
