NEW YORK, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- ESPN's Chris Fowler said Saturday's Pinstripe Bowl might have been the last game he ever covered had colleague Jesse Palmer not known the Heimlich maneuver.

Fowler said on Twitter that Palmer stepped in in timely fashion when he began choking on a chicken sandwich in the press box at Yankee Stadium.

"He saved me from death by dry chicken sandwich," Fowler wrote. "Really."

Fowler tweeted later he was feeling fine and appreciated the "nice comments" from his followers, NJ.com said.
