St. John Ambulance, an organization dedicated to teaching medical first aid, posted a video on their YouTube page back in January that is a must-watch for every parent. According to them, 40% of parents have witnessed their own baby choke, yet over 80% of these parents had no idea what to do in such a situation. This is an alarming statistic, especially when you consider that an average of 34 children are treated for choking on food every day.
In order to combat this staggering issue, St. John Ambulance created 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.
