LINK Clint Eastwood was at a party on the eve of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am when he noticed a man choking. The 83-year-old actor grabbed the man, who turned out to be tournament director Steve John, and performed the Heimlich maneuver. â€œI was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didnâ€™t work,â€ John told the Associated Press. â€œI was looking at him and couldnâ€™t breathe. He recognized it immediately and saved my life.â€ â€œI looked in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes,â€ Eastwood told The Carmel Pine Cone, adding that it was the first time he performed the Heimlich. â€œIt looked bad.â€ Eastwood may not be as young as he once was, but donâ€™t think for a second the man who brought Dirty Harry to life has lost a step. â€œI canâ€™t believe Iâ€™m 202 pounds and he threw me up in the air three times,â€ John said. Confirmed: Clint Eastwood has old man strength. More astounding than Eastwoodâ€™s superhuman strength is the fact that this is the second time John almost killed himself trying to eat. â€œIt was in Colorado about seven or eight years ago. But it wasnâ€™t Clint Eastwood,â€ he said. â€œI havenâ€™t talked to him since that night. It was crazy.â€ You gotta take smaller bites. Eastwood has strong ties to the Pebble Beach event. He has played in the tournament before and he chairs the Monterey Peninsula Foundation which has raised over $100 million for charity as the host of the PGA Tour event.
