Man saves woman's life at Yankee Stadium

An Army medic saved a Bronx rabbi?s wife from choking yesterday at Yankee Stadium.

While enjoying the game, Toby Weiss began to choke while eating a hot dog. After several fans were unable to successfully help, John Stone rushed to her rescue from 15 rows back.

Stone, who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan, says he had never performed the Heimlich maneuver.

Weiss promised that her next child will be name John Stone.
