EMERGENCY AT TWINKLE LIGHT PARADE IN NOB HILL HAS HAPPY ENDING dentist Albuquerque
The annual Twinkle Light Parade in Nob Hill, complete with antler-attached horses, was raising the Christmas spirit among the parade-goers when an emergency struck. Firefighter Chris Adair noticed a tearful woman in distress and sprung into action. He and driver Christopher Epley discovered that the woman’s eight year-old daughter was choking on something.
They rushed her to the firetruck where they performed two Heimlich maneuvers. The action dislodged a portion of a candy cane that the girl had been eating which had been lodged in her throat. The mother and daughter quickly disappeared into to crowd.
Mayor Tim Keller remarked that this was the perfect Christmas story and honored the two firefighters with “hero coins.”
