Oregon OL Mark Asper Saves Choking Man At Lawry's Beef Bowl

When out for a nice dinner Wednesday evening, Oregon Ducks offensive lineman Mark Asper was in for a bit more than he bargained for when a fellow diner began to choke at the Lawry's Beef Bowl supper in Pasadena, CA. Asper sprang to action, saving an older man's life using the Heimlich Maneuver. All in a day's work for the Ducks' big man.

Here's the Register-Guard's Adam Jude via Twitter:

Amazing.

According to Jude, a server was trying the Heimlich first, but wasn't doing so hot, so Asper stepped in. Once it was over, the older man was very gracious (sort of), while Asper was still worried about his safety:

They might have been really expensive glasses though. You never really know. Either way, at-a-way Mr. Asper, way to be an exemplary citizen.
