McMinnville, OR -- Yamhill County Sheriff Svenson awarded Crystal Harmes a Certificate of Appreciation for her actions on Monday, September 11, 2017, in the Yamhill County Correctional Facility. Early Monday morning, a fellow inmate began choking on a piece of food. Harmes quickly jumped into action, asking the individual if she was choking and, once acknowledged, began performing the Heimlich maneuver. Jail medical staff and deputies, who were called via the intercom by another inmate, arrived to find Harmes' actions had safely dislodged the food and prevented the other individual from more serious injury. Sheriff Svenson thanked Ms. Harmes for her quick thinking saying, "We don't get the opportunity to provide certificates of appreciation in the facility often, but, after reviewing the video, I couldn't let this incident pass by. Harmes stepped up without hesitation and did the right thing. That needs to be recognized." Svenson also praised Harmes for what he noted was a "textbook Heimlich technique."
