On Friday afternoon, a 7-year-old girl named Amira Thorton was watching TV when she heard weird sounds coming from the kitchen at her home in Gresham, Oregon.
So she ran in and found her mother CHOKING on a piece of sausage. Now, Amira says that at some point, her grandfather had told her about the Heimlich maneuver.
But the reason she knew EXACTLY what to do was because she'd seen Robin Williams do it to Pierce Brosnan in the movie "Mrs. Doubtfire".
And apparently Amira's pretty strong for her age, because she actually managed to pick her mom up off the ground THREE TIMES . . . eventually got her to spit the sausage up . . . and saved her life.
