Pleeease, Mister Conductor, don't put me off the train...

Travis Walls, a fast-thinking conductor on the Eureka Springs and North Arkansas Railroad, was nominated by an admirer of his quick action who wrote: "On the 2 p.m. train ride last Wednesday a sixth grade girl on a church school tour choked on a jaw breaker and couldn't breathe. Travis went to her and implemented the Heimlich maneuver. On the third compression, the jawbreaker broke loose and she resumed breathing, much to the gratification of the young woman and her mother."
