When a boy started choking on a mint before Sunday night’s Kings game at Sleep Train Arena, a fast-thinking fan jumped into action. Cheryl Horner-Christensen knew something was wrong when her nine-year-old son Jace started hitting her on the leg. “His eyes got really big and I just said, ‘somebody please help me, please help me I think he’s choking,'” Horner-Christensen recalled. “This man sitting basically right in front of my son jumped over the seat and just picked him up and started doing the Heimlich maneuver on him.” “Like something out of a movie,” witness Devin Rushkin added. “He grabs onto the kid and starts doing the Heimlich. The mint…popped out. And then everything kind of calmed down after that.” Fox40.com

(Sacramento) has a great team here, but I haven't really given it much thought if Karl should come here. I'm just concentrating on getting the Nuggets back into the playoffs." Denver Post
