OriginEdit

Henry Judah Heimlich (born February 3, 1920) is an American thoracic surgeon widely credited as the inventor of the Heimlich maneuver, a technique of abdominal thrusts for stopping choking, described in Emergency Medicine in 1974.

This tie was worn by Heimlich many different times, but became an artifact when he demonstrated his maneuver to friends and colleagues.

EffectsEdit

When worn, the tie guarantees that the user will never choke on any foreign objects that the user may have swallowed, but the foreign object re-appears in the throat of a random person who just so happens to be in the area.

Not to be confused with Dr. Heimlich's Neck Brace, a different artifact of the same creator, with similar effects.

CollectionEdit

This artifact was in the possession of Donald H. Solano in Rexburg, Idaho where he used the tie to win various pie eating contests for a 300 dollar prize for every contest. It caught the attention of Warehouse 13 agents in 1989 when Elizabeth Hamme choked to death while riding a ferris wheel during the state county fair, when they looked inside her throat, they discovered that she had a large chunk of blueberry pie wedged inside her throat.

It was collected on June 12th, 1989 by Agents James MacPherson and Arthur Nielson.
