Fear for Alessia Marcuzzi, 49 years old: During a dinner in London, where the presenter is often for work but also for family reasons, she risked choking on a mouthful of octopus that got stuck in her windpipe. It was Wilma Faissol, wife of Francesco Facchinetti and father of his daughter Mia, who literally saved her. In fact, fearless and cold, Wilma performed the right maneuver on Alessia to free her from the blockage of the sideways bite and save her life. The story was posted on Instagram by Alessia herself: We were at a restaurant in London and while I was eating, a piece of octopus got stuck in my windpipe. I couldn’t breathe anymore, I got up and started rolling my eyes and begging for help. Paolo and Tommy tried to free me by hitting me on the back but nothing. Panic writes Marcuzzi. I really thought I was dying, I couldn’t understand anymore as Wilma took me from behind and squeezed me tight and gave me a good punch up on the sternum. Suddenly, I spat out the large chunk that was blocking my breathing, which had remained completely intact, and continued to swallow.

The episode panicked everyone in attendance who didn’t understand what the problem was at the time: all of this in two minutes in front of all the people in the restaurant who didn’t understand what was happening. I turned around, hugged her tightly and told her touched: “You saved my life. I will never forget it”. True, I will never forget Wilma. In a few minutes or maybe seconds I went from a state of extreme suffering to total liberation and I realized that it could end very badly.

The presenter, who made her debut on Rai Due with the show Boomerissima in September, then explained how Faissol knew how to behave because she had attended a first aid course held in America: “I made up my mind to do the Heimlich- Learning maneuvers,” Alessia concluded. who thanked her friend with a joint photo on Instagram.
