John Schneider, the Toronto Blue Jays manager, recently saved a woman from choking in a restaurant. He and his wife were eating at a restaurant in Dunedin, Florida when he noticed a woman at a nearby table was choking on her food. He immediately jumped into action and performed the Heimlich maneuver, which he learned in 6th grade. Once the woman was able to breathe safely again, both parties returned to their meals. Schneider was rewarded with a free beer which helped calm his nerves. He said, “It’s not like you’re looking for a pat on the back. She said, ‘Thank you,’ and carried on with her meal with her friends. We kind of just said: ‘See you later.’ Again, I wasn’t looking for a big compliment. I think I was a little bit more rattled than she was.” As per The Athletic, his wife, Jess, praised his grace and calmness during the incident. She said, “He gracefully gets up, doesn’t panic. The way he held his cool, you would have thought he was managing a wild-card game. It was so graceful.” 



John Schneider’s heroic act has made headlines and been praised by many. His quick thinking and knowledge of the Heimlich maneuver saved a life and showed us how important it is to be prepared for such situations. Although Schneider wasn’t looking for the recognition he received, his act of heroism will undoubtedly have an impact on many. The Toronto Blue Jays organization released a statement in response to Schneider’s heroic act. They said, “We are so proud of John’s quick thinking in a time of need. His ability to stay calm and use his knowledge of the Heimlich maneuver shows his commitment to his team and his community.“

He is an exemplary role model, and we are lucky to have him as part of the Blue Jays family. John Schneider’s heroic act is a reminder of the importance of being prepared for any situation. It is also an example of how one should always have the courage to do the right thing, no matter the cost. We should all strive to be the kind of person Schneider is and always be willing to help whenever needed. It is only through acts of heroism that we all can make the world a better place.
