“James Higginbotham, you saved my life”

A personal message from Peter Clare, Managing Director of ECM, to the man who saved him from choking to death

“I was at the Grosvenor Arms in Alford and started to really choke. Couldn’t breathe or swallow for two minutes, then James Higginbotham appeared and gave me the Heimlich Manoeuvre (a procedure for dislodging an obstruction from a person’s wind pipe).

All well now. James, thank you so much – it’s great not to have choked to death!”
