This 41 Second Video Can Help You Save A Baby From Choking.

If there is a video you need to watch and share with friends and family, this is it!

St John Ambulance released this video showcasing small things that can be found in any home with small children such as a crayon, a princess, a pen cap, a jelly baby and marbles. Despite looking innocent enough, these small items can be hazardous and deadly when swallowed by a baby or child.

The very items that are potentially dangerous are used as animated characters called The Chokeables. The video teaches two easy techniques that can be performed to ensure a child’s airway is cleared. If that still does not work, it is encouraged to call 9-1-1 immediately.

SJA estimates 40% of parents have had situations when their children have choked. Alarming, four-fifth of the parents questioned did not know what to do.

Please share this video, it could save a life a child’s life.
