Perhaps seeking revenge for the treatment of the animal it came from, a piece of meat attacked and choked a California diner last Thursday—until Kansas City Chiefs star Tony Gonzalez stepped in to save the man’s life. Gonzalez heard calls for help from other diners who noticed that diner Ken Hunter had begun to choke. Gonzalez, having had no training in the Heimlich maneuver, nevertheless rushed in and applied the lifesaving technique as best he could—successfully dislodging the malicious meaty bit from Hunter’s throat.

Wonder how Gonzalez has such a knack for saving lives? Well, the 247 lb., 6’5″, nine-time Pro Bowl selection eats a diet rich with foods that also spare the animals’ lives—to stay strong he adheres to a mostly vegan diet! How ironic that out of a restaurant full of animal eaters, it was Gonzalez who stepped in and did the “save,” huh? If anyone knows where Mr. Hunter is, let’s send him a “Vegetarian Starter Kit” so he can learn about some other foods that are less likely to kill him.
