A 28-year-old teacher died after choking on a hotdog during the national anthem at a Cubs game Tuesday at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

“You could see everyone rushing up to the top of the seating with a frantic look on their face. They performed CPR like I’ve never seen,” Brent Olson, an eyewitness, told The Chicago Sun-Times in an email.

Maureen Oleskiewicz went into cardiac arrest, and efforts to save her were unsuccessful, The Sun-Times report said.

Margaret Oleskiewicz, the woman’s mom, said she was told her daughter’s “big, giving heart” will go to a 14-year-old girl in desperate need of one.
