Eastwood attended a volunteer party on the eve of the PGA Tour event when he noticed tournament director Steve John choking on a piece of cheese.

The 83-year-old actor quickly performed the Heimlich maneuver.

“I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn’t work,” John said Friday. “I was looking at him and couldn’t breathe. He recognized it immediately and saved my life.”

“I looked in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes,” Eastwood told The Carmel Pine Cone. “It looked bad.”

He said it was the first time he had used the Heimlich maneuver.

“I can’t believe I’m 202 pounds and he threw me up in the air three times,” John said.

The 50-year-old John said it was the second time in his life someone had to perform the Heimlich on him.

“It was in Colorado about seven or eight years ago. But it wasn’t Clint Eastwood,” he said. “I haven’t talked to him since that night. It was crazy.”

Eastwood has raised over $100 million for charity as the host of the PGA Tour event.
