Traffic stop in Kalamazoo turns into an emergency rescue


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Officers never know what they are going to find when they initiate a traffic stop.

Public Safety Officer Jason Gates discovered a woman who had just run a red light in the 4100 block of S. Burdick, couldn’t breathe and appeared to be choking on something.

When two slaps on the back failed to dislodge the object, he pulled her out of the vehicle and applied the Heimlich maneuver, and out popped a piece of sausage and bun.

The victim, crying with joy, threw herself into officer Gate’s arms, thanking him for saving her life.
