An Ohio police officer was seen saving a choking man who ingested a bag of illegal marijuana during a traffic stop.

“Don’t try to swallow a bag of drugs prior to getting pulled over in an attempt to keep a trooper from finding them. Luckily, Tpr. Hoskin from our Ravenna Post was alert and able to assist the man who was choking on a bag of illegal marijuana,” the Ohio State Patrol’s official Twitter account wrote on Thursday, accompanied by footage of the scene.

The video shows Trooper Charles Hoskin approaching 24-year-old Stephan R. Elash during a traffic stop. Hoskin is seen asking Elash if he is okay as the 24-year-old gets out of the vehicle and is choking.
