The woman, later identified as Victoria Terrill, noticed her son, Chaz, was choking while they drove back from dinner, ABC Oklahoma City station KOCO said. She pulled over into the car wash parking lot to try to find help.

Terrill reportedly told the deputy she thought Chaz was choking on a sucker, so Wheeler tried to hit Chaz on the back to hopefully get the sucker out.

However, after Wheeler gave Chaz some swift swats to the back, a quarter popped out onto the ground.

Wheeler's efforts were captured on his body camera.
