In June 2018, 41-year-old Cletus Schnieders passed away after choking on his dinner. However, the events that occurred in the hours after his death provided an unforgettable opportunity for another individual.
Schnieders was a father-of-three from Cincinnati, husband to 30-year-old Carrie. She was chatting with Cletus when the incident occurred. After wondering why Schnieders wasn’t answering her questions, she went to him to check out what was going on. And suddenly it became clear that food was stuck in his throat.
Before long, Schnieders collapsed onto the floor. In a panic, Carrie called for medical help and attempted to keep him breathing until it arrived. He was taken to the nearest hospital, where he remained for two days.
