Clint Eastwood came to the rescue of one very lucky man.

Clint was at a party of AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am last week when he looked over and saw a man choking, reports CBS News. Without hesitation, the 83-year-old actor rushed over and performed the Heimlich maneuver on the man, who turned out to be none other than the tournament director, Steve John.

Steve later explained that he was drinking water and eating appetizers when one of the pieces of cheese got lodged in his throat. He said he then made eye contact with Clint, who just happened to noticed that Steve couldn’t breathe.

Steve called Clint “old man strength” because he threw Steve, who weighed 202 pounds, three times up in the air, and ultimately saved his life.

By the way, that was the first time Clint has ever used the Heimlich on a person before.
