A Man Chokes On Raisins While Driving and Blacks Out

Posted in Pictures, Video, Commercials, Media by wolferadio11 on November 22, 2010

This guy is VERY lucky to be alive . . . surviving a choking and THREE car crashes in the span of two minutes is really no easy feat. 53-year-old Richard Silvia of East Falmouth, Massachusetts is an oil tank repairman.  Last week, he was driving an oil truck and eating some raisins for a snack. At one point he swallowed too many . . . and the raisins clogged his windpipe.  He choked, then BLACKED OUT. His truck started swerving all over the road, and eventually slammed into the side of an Oldsmobile.  He bounced off that, crashed into a minivan . . . went through someone’s front lawn . . . and finally crashed to a stop. That crash deployed the airbag, which hit Richard . . . and basically performed an accidental Heimlich.  The raisins dislodged, Richard could breathe again, and he regained consciousness. Amazingly, no one was hurt.  The oil tank truck he was driving didn’t have any oil in the back, so there was no crazy explosion or anything.  Richard was OK, as were the drivers of the two other vehicles he hit. But Richard DID end up getting ticketed for impeded driving.
