WATCH: Hospital Demonstrates How To Save A Choking Baby In Just Seconds

RealClear Contributor


This may seem like an otherworldly statistic but according to St. John Ambulance and their team of researchers, 40% of parents have witnessed their own baby choke while 80% of these parents had no idea what to do in such a situation.

A lot of the children survive the ordeal but a lot also don't and given that 34 children are treated for choking on a daily basis we can conclude that there isn't enough information out there about what to do when your child is choking.

The best remedy is always prevention but there are just some things that we can't prevent. So St. John Ambulance decided to create an animated video that will show you a very easy way to save a choking baby. In this heartwarming video, four characters – a pen lid, marble, jelly baby, and princess – work together, in a fun-filled manner, to show you the proper technique.

We all know that infants and babies will put anything and everything into their mouth, so this video is incredibly resourceful for those with little kids.

Every parent needs to see this, so please SHARE it with your friends on Facebook.
