17-Year-Old Chokes and is Saved with LifeVac in a Choking Emergency

LifeVac registers another life saved

It was reported to us that a 17-year-old male choked on potato chips causing a partial airway obstruction. The family was on holiday at the Dream Inn in Santa Cruz California.

He was with his aunt in the hotel room as the rest of the family were on the beach already. His aunt had asked for some help with bringing some things into the hotel. He was eating chips quickly and began gasping. His aunt always travels with her LifeVac and quickly grabbed the device. She successfully dislodged the obstruction on the third Place Push Pull.

Yes definitely helped 100% saving his life
