Dumber by the day

From The New York Times, where evidently neither the op/ed writer, the copy editor, nor the proofreader has a fundamental understanding of human anatomy and physiology.
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.
