Kalamazoo Public Safety Officer Jason Gates is being hailed a hero after saving the life of a driver who was choking. It all unfolded around Saturday when Gates pulled a woman over for a red light violation. As the officer approached the car, he found the driver coughing and choking. Dash cam video from the incident shows Officer Gates asking the woman if she was okay, and when he realizes she’s in trouble, he administers a couple of back blows. When that doesn’t work Gates quickly pull the woman from the car and administer the Heimlich maneuver
