Young girl saves friend with Heimlich
A 12-year-old Point Lookout girl saved her friend's life by performing the Heimlich Maneuver.
Mirriam Starobin says she was in music class earlier this week when her friend Allyson Golden began choking on a piece of gum. She told News 12 Long Island she performed the maneuver just like she saw it on the television show, "Sponge Bob Square Pants" when she was younger.
Golden's parents say they have Starobin and a little yellow cartoon character to thank for saving their daughter's life.
