Newspaper Correction of the Day

On February 5th, the Times appended this correction to a two-day earlier Op-Ed called "A Heimlich in Every Pot":
Correction: February 5, 2009
An Op-Ed article on Wednesday, about the Heimlich maneuver, incorrectly described the technique. The person administering the maneuver pushes under the choking victim’s diaphragm, not above it. The article also misidentified the part of the body food travels through to the stomach. It is the esophagus, not the trachea.
Good luck eating near Times Square!
