NOBLE Co. — Last Friday, a Noble County Deputy saved a nearby choking woman by performing the Heimlich maneuver.

The Noble County Sheriff's Department shared the body cam footage on Facebook.

According to the department, Deputy Jerry Weber overheard a conversation with dispatch and a caller on Live 911 in regards to a driver who was possibly choking nearby.
