Lawyer Gets Clutch Save at Dodgers Game

6/29/2010 4:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The L.A. Dodgers weren't the only ones who choked on Sunday night -- a VIP fan needed help after getting some food stuck in his throat ... and he got assistance from the lawyer for Dodgers owner Frank McCourt.

It all went down in the Dugout Club at Dodger Stadium -- the fancy place where all the VIP fans hang out -- when a middle-aged man began choking on a "meat product."

We're told another man rushed to his aid and began performing the Heimlich Maneuver ... and successfully dislodged the meat product.

But our hero wasn't any ordinary baseball fan -- it was Marshall Grossman ... the guy repping L.A. Dodgers owner Frank McCourt in the bitter divorce that seems to be tearing the team apart.  

After the incident, Marshall told the man he saved, "Next time you have a medical emergency, call a lawyer."

yeah, I'm way out of line.    

If it was a lawyer, then he was probably trying to squeeze some money out of him. Believe me, I know.

I wonder if the Lawyer tried to charge him for his time.

Is that a jail house exercise? Looks strange to me. When it comes to lawyers, saving and screwing looks a lot alike!

Seriously? He got "assistance from the lawyer for the estranged wife of Dodgers owner Frank McCourt"?
What a brush with fame.
I once got directions from the cousin of the woman who used to babysit for Wayne Gretzky's younger brother.

Seriously, everyone should know the Heimlich Maneuver, for adults and infants. It might be your loved one's life that you save.
Good job, Mr. Grossman.

TMZ revised this story. Didn't TMZ say originally it was Jamie McCourt's lawyer and even asked how he got in there. TMZ should have marked it REVISED.
