LifeVac are extremely pleased to share news of another child saved
It was reported to us, that a 5-year-old little girl with Down Syndrome choked on bread while at a soft play, BLS first aid choking protocol was performed, but was unsuccessful in dislodging the obstruction. The little girl then became unconscious and paramedics were called to the scene. Paramedics were unable to remove the obstruction. A man ran in to the soft play and asked to try the LifeVac he had in his car. The paramedics agreed and on the fourth PLACE – PUSH – PULL motion the bread was dislodged, saving the little girls life.
