Good Samaritan Saves Man from Choking with LifeVac in a Choking Emergency

LifeVac are proud to share news of another life saved

It was reported to us that a 50-year-old gentleman was saved by a Good Samaritan. The gentleman began to choke on a piece of chicken that caused a full airway obstruction  Unfortunately, no one was able to perform the abdominal thrusts due to his stature. Thankfully a Good Samaritan had a LifeVac in her car. After two attempts the food was dislodged saving his life.

“The device dislodged the chicken and was fine after that. He did not want/need further medical treatment. Absolutely! saved his life!”

He was such a large man no one could get their arm around him to do the abdominal thrusts. My car was right there with my LifeVac in it so it only took a couple of seconds to get it. I heard about the device on a Facebook story about a little boy that died after a choking incident not far from me. His parents are now huge advocates and trying to get LifeVac at every restaurant, school, and EMT they possibly can. When I bought mine I bought 4 of them. I got 3/4 of my children one to have for their kids, one for myself, and got donated to my grandson’s nursery school. Thank you for an AMAZING product! I’m SO glad I purchased one for myself when I purchased one for each of my 3 children that have young kids.
