Teenager chokes on piece of candy, searching for UPS driver who saved him - Fox59 A teenager is searching for the stranger who saved his life. On Thursday evening, Cody Kennedy was driving on Ronald Reagan Parkway, heading home to Avon. The 17-year-old started choking on a piece of candy. He pulled over and fell to the ground near the median. Within 20 seconds, a UPS driver stopped to help. “He knew what was going on. I did the Heimlich Maneuver sign. He came up and said ‘Buddy, this may hurt a little bit.’ He came down and he grabbed his hands around my chest and just 1, 2, 3, and the SweeTart came flying out,” explains Kennedy.
