BRONX, Ny. -- Most people agree that getting pulled over by a cop can be a bitter experience. However, it was bitter-sweet when a New York cop may have saved a woman's life who was choking on candy.

Officer Gregory Zakoscielny pulled the 49-year-old over because her car was swerving.  When she got out, she was stumbling and gasping for air.

He knew something wasn't right.  That's when the officer started the Heimlich maneuver on her.  Bet that piece of candy left a taste in her mouth she'll never forget.
