Ralphie May To The Rescue ... Saves Choking Baby

Exclusive Details

Comedian Ralphie May saved a choking toddler's life at the Spokane airport Thursday after stepping up and giving the kid the Heimlich.

A witness tells us Ralphie was sitting inside the airport's food court when the kid's mother began screaming at the top of her lungs nearby for help. People gathered around, and one person attempted to hit the child on the back, but it didn't work and the kid started turning blue. 

That's when Ralphie moved in to give the kid the Heimlich, dislodging the food.

Our witness says paramedics eventually arrived and told Ralphie he'd saved the tot's life.
