LifeVac are happy to share news of another life saved
It was reported to us that a 2-year-old boy from Pennsylvania choked on a lollipop. The child had gone to the doctors and afterward, they stopped at CVS to pick up a prescription. The young boy was given a lollipop.
After arriving home, the child was enjoying the sweet when the lollipop detached from the stick. The child was in distress and turning blue. The hard sweet completely blocked his airway. Choking first aid rescue procedures were performed but failed to dislodge the obstruction.
Thankfully the family had a LifeVac and on the second application dislodged the obstruction.
Police showed up first on the scene and then the EMTs who had heard about the LifeVac device. The child was evaluated and given a clean bill of health.
