OP here! Thank you all for the praise, I honestly did not think twice when I jumped up and performed the Heimlich maneuver on her. One thing I want to make clear here was not that my situation was worse than my friends, but the fact that the wait staff had no remorse about what had just happened although they stood there and watched me save her life. Learning the Heimlich can really be life saving before you know it :)

No, OP didn't. The Heimlich manoeuvre actually causes more harm then good. Just hit with the heel of your palm between the shoulder blades with moderate force 5 times or push with your hand 5 times at the sternum. The Heimlich manoeuvre can cause your internal organs to be crushed or your lungs to be punctured.
