Latin beauty JENNIFER LOPEZ saved the life of her boyfriend CRIS JUDD when he began choking in a smart Los Angeles restaurant.
Stunned diners in the trendy THE IVY eaterie looked on as the OUT OF SIGHT (1998) star performed the 'Heimlich manoeuvre' - holding him from behind, her hands knotted under his diaphragm, and repeatedly giving him sudden bear hugs.
Jenny's efforts forced air from Cris' lungs and eventually shot the offending lump of bread from his throat like a cork from a bottle. The modest star tried to play down the incident, saying, "It was no big deal, I'm hardly a hero. " (TM/WNTST/KW)
