Oregon player performs Heimlich at Beef Bowl


BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (WKOW) -- An Oregon football player helped a choking diner during the traditional Beef Bowl, which brings the teams playing in the Rose Bowl to Lawry's in Beverly Hills for prime rib.

It was Oregon's turn Wednesday. That's when Paul Diamond, the father of a Oregon senior, began choking a bit while eating.

An Oregon guard, 6-foot-7, 325-pound Mark Asper, performed the Heimlich maneuver on Diamond, helping him cough the meat up.

Asper says he learned the Heimlich in the Boy Scouts.

The Beef Bowl traditionally brings the teams to the restaurant on separate nights for a dinner before the game.

Wisconsin visits Lawrys Thursday evening.
