Woman with COPD and Asthma Chokes and Is Saved with LifeVac in a Choking Emergency

LifeVac are delighted to share details on another life saved

It has been reported to us that a 59-year-old woman with COPD and Asthma choked on a piece of watermelon. The whole family were visiting her mothers house.

Below is her sister’s testimonial of the choking incident that took place that day.

My sister Debbie, who is a 59-year-old Grandmother of 7, was on vacation visiting family in Michigan. During a family BBQ she started choking on a piece of watermelon. The watermelon was blocking her airway. She was unable to take any air in and started to panic. Literally, three hours before this incident I had brought over to the BBQ several LifeVacs that I had purchased for my family members. As she was choking, I remembered and went and grabbed one. I had not even watched the training video yet. It was quick and easy to assemble and clearly labeled “Adult” mask. I placed the LifeVac on her face while she was sitting upright and after a couple of attempts, I was able to dislodge the piece of watermelon. We are grateful that it worked, and it saved her life! Now, she is able to see her new grandson be born in August!!
