DALLAS (AP) – A Dallas City Council member who’s a nurse has been credited with saving a man when he began choking while dining at a restaurant.

Jennifer Staubach Gates on Wednesday said she’s relieved that she was able to help. She’s the daughter of NFL Hall of Famer and ex-Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach.

Staubach Gates and her husband were at a restaurant Monday night when a waiter asked customers if anyone had medical training because a man was choking.

The council member says she examined the man, couldn’t find a pulse and began CPR. He started breathing within a couple of minutes.

Paramedics transported the man to a hospital, where he was examined and released.

Staubach Gates says she just did what she was trained to do.
