WASHINGTON: Hollywood’s iconic good guy, Clint Eastwood, is also a real life hero after swooping to rescue a choking guest at a California reception. During a reception on Wednesday for a golf tournament in Carmel-by-the-Sea, Steve John was eating and chatting, only to get a piece of cheese stuck in his windpipe. “Suddenly, I couldn’t breathe. It was as bad as it could have been. Clint came up behind me and he knew exactly what to do,” recalled the director of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament in California.
