"I am a first responder so when I saw my son choking, I knew exactly what I needed to do. To my horror, the Abdominal Thrust was ineffective. I quickly realised his food was firmly wedged in his throat. I quickly grabbed the LifeVac. It only took one pump to pop the food out. My son began to cry, which meant he was now breathing. Relief filled me, and then gratitude for this device that saved my son's life."
