    Horrible, horrible story. Kelly Breslin was 44. She passed out in a NYC restaurant and died four days later. She may have choked, but no one at the table realized it, although EMT records don't indicate if she was choking. The restaurant owner says the staff is trained to do the Heimlich but didn't because it didn't look like it was needed.

    MAY have choked? The wad of food in her windpipe will tell the tale. RIP.

    She died four days after collapsing. I doubt she was choking.
     
  4. This happened at 4 a.m.? And she died four days later. I'm also thinking it wasn't as a result of choking.


    That's sad for Breslin.. story said his wife died at age 47 or 49 of a rare disorder.
