U.S. Border Patrol agents rescued a choking 6-year-old child at a Douglas Carl's Jr. Sunday.

According to the Border Patrol, agent Rober Lee saw the boy choking and helped dislodge the food by smacking him twice on the back. The child immediately began breathing again.

"This is just another example of what makes me so proud of our agents," said Tucson Sector's Chief Patrol Agent Paul Beeson said in a statement. "We are all committed to protecting and keeping our communities safe. This is where we live and raise our own families."
