PARAMUS, N.J. — Not all heroes wear capes and in this case, she wears an apron and works at the Chili's Grill & Bar in Paramus.

Waitress Dina Gonzalez heard screams coming from a table in the restaurant and ran over to assess, CBS reports.

The 9-year-old girl at the table was choking on chicken fingers, and so for the first time in her 11 years at the restaurant, Gonzalez performed the Heimlich maneuver, saving the customer's life, the article says.
