If Jeremy Shockey can be a lifesaver for the Carolina Panthers this season like he was for teammate Ben Hartsock today, it will be a heck of a year.

Hartsock is crediting Shockey with helping save him today after Hartsock, a fellow tight end, could not breathe in the team’s lunch room. A piece of pork tenderloin lodged in Hartsock’s throat and Shockey came to the rescue, the National Football Post has learned.

“He said to me a little while ago, ‘I really hope this doesn’t get out but if it does it’s going to be a funny story,’” said Chicago-based agent Mike McCartney, who represents Hartsock.

It's more of a story with a good ending than it is a funny one. Hartsock tried drinking some water to clear his throat and when that didn’t work it became evident to others in the room he could not breathe.

“He started to go to the bathroom and I don’t know if he collapsed, but he couldn’t breathe,” McCartney said. “Some new guy came and tried to give him the Heimlich. It didn’t work. Then, Shockey hit him in the back pretty hard and out came the meat. The Panthers told me it was really scary.

Respect level for Shockey just went through the roof, glad Hartsock is ok (choking is scary, its happened to me). Now all he needs to do is save Cam when he throws the ball. :D

hartstock was choking on a piece of meat in the bathroom?

How dare you make fun of someone almost dying from choking. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Am I mistaken but isnt slapping someone on the back to get them unchocked a big no-no? It can cause the food to get lodged worse iirc.

Glad it worked. I'm not sure Shockey smacking him in the back is the same as the heimlich but as long as it works.

Maybe if no eating was added to their contracts this wouldn't happen now would it.

You wanna go into the season with 90 pound offensive linemen?

On the topic, good for Shockey.
