TV Is Good For You of the Day: 12-year-old Miriam Starobin saved her choking friend Allyson Golden’s life by performing the Heimlich maneuver, which she says she learned from an episode of SpongeBob.

From the New York Post:

Miriam said she remembered seeing a cartoon episode involving SpongeBob’s neighbor Squidward when she was a little girl.

“It was like a flash right in my eyes. I saw in my head Squidward with his clarinet lodged in his throat and then SpongeBob does the Heimlich maneuver and the clarinet comes flying out of his mouth,” she said.

SpongeBob saves.
