BTN LiveBIG: The Golden Bear helping kids

In April 1966, When Nancy Nicklaus was 11 months old, she swallowed a piece of a crayon. Her parents noticed a series of choking incidents that would start, stop and start again. Jack and Barbara Nicklaus refused to take chances. They shuttled their middle child and only daughter to the Columbus Children’s Hospital, where doctors discovered the crayon piece lodged in her windpipe. The hospital stabilized “Nan” and calmed the 26-year-old golfer and his wife. “They felt that the hospital, at that time, had saved Nan’s life, and this was early in Jack’s career,” says Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation
