The girls were enjoying the fun facts they were finding when all of a sudden, Lindsay saw Erica choking. Erica had been chewing on a pen cap and accidentally swallowed it! Erica started pointing to her neck. Lindsay asked her if she was choking(窒息， 哽咽). When Erica nodded to say yes, Lindsay quickly stood up and did the Heimlich maneuver (海姆利克 氏操作法) to try to help Erica stop choking.
