LifeVac Europe are proud to announce another life has been saved in a choking emergency.
LifeVac Europe are happy to share the news that LifeVac has saved another child in a choking emergency. We received a report that a 3-year-old boy with Down Syndrome choked on a gummy fruit chew snack. His father shared details of the choking scare. The fruit chew snack caused a partial blockage but he was unable to dislodge the obstruction with back blows. When choking rescue procedures failed to dislodge the airway obstruction the child’s father laid him on the floor. Holding his sons head, the father applied the LifeVac to the child’s face and on the second place, push, pull motion the gummy fruit snack popped right out onto the floor.
We are so thankful the child is okay especially with the nearest hospital 16 miles away.
