War veteran Bob Carbajal, 62, lost his wife of four decades three years ago.
Wednesday, Carbajal saved the life of a stranger when the woman began choking at Frank’s Grill in Houston. He put the woman on her side and used a finger sweep to clear the obstruction after he set his wallet aside on a restaurant counter.
With the woman breathing on her own, he returned to retrieve his wallet. The wallet was gone — along with $300 cash designated for his grandchildren’s Christmas gifts, credit cards, his military ID and an irreplaceable photo of his late wife when she was a teenager.
Police believe two women may have taken Carbajal’s wallet. One was wearing a white shirt with white and black pants. The other was wearing a tan button down shirt, with blue jeans and tan boots.
