I found this at
Go there and you can hear Rush tell it.

A man and his young son, little boy, were in a coffee shop, diner-type
circumstance. They were sitting at the counter. This place also had some
little tables scattered around the room, but this young man and his father
were at the counter. And the little boy had a quarter in his hand, between
his index finger and his thumb, and his flipping it around and so forth.
His father is having something to drink, something to eat, the kid is, too.

All of a sudden there's this commotion, and the father looks over, and his
son is choking, and the quarter is not in his hand anymore. So the guy
says, "Oh, no, son's choking! He swallowed a quarter!" Well, at the far end
of the room is a neatly dressed woman in a business suit, navy blue, who is
reading the paper and having a cup of coffee. She noticed the commotion
about halfway down the room so she calmly folded her newspaper, put it on
her table, got up, walked over to the man, and said, "What happened?"

"He's choking, he swallowed a quarter." So this woman put her hand on this
little boy's groin and began to squeeze, gently, at first, and then slowly
added pressure, more and more pressure. After not too long a period of
time, the little boy began to convulse and in the process the quarter
popped right out of his mouth and he was able to breathe again.

And the father, who had been watching all this was stunned, could not
believe it. He was beside himself, attending to his little boy, made sure
the boy was okay. The woman, when she finished, just went back to her
table, sat down, and began reading the newspaper. So the father, after
making sure his son was okay, and everybody calmed down, walks down to the
woman who is once again seated and says, "That's amazing. I have never seen
anything like that before. Are you a doctor?"

And she looks up and said, "No, divorce lawyer."
