Boy calls 911 after Mom Chokes on Chip

WORLAND, Wyo. - A 5-year-old kindergartner is being credited with saving his mother's life when he dialed 911 after she choked on a potato chip. Mathew Rissler dialed 911 at 8:22 p.m. Monday. He said he learned at school how to dial the emergency number.
His mother, Sandy Rissler, said she was eating nachos when a chip got stuck in her throat during a sneeze.
"Mathew came downstairs and said, 'Mommy? Mommy, are you OK?' and I shook my head no," she said. "And then he asked, 'Do you need help?' and I nodded my head yes."
Rissler said she handed her son the telephone.
"Then he said, '911?' and I nodded my head yes."
He talked to the 911 operator, opened the door for two police officers and led them to her, she said.
An officer performed the Heimlich maneuver to dislodge the chip.
