You’re Alone And Choking. Now what?
I just read a heartbreaking story of a young woman, out alone, who choked to death on some food. Without anyone there to administer the Heimlich manoeuvre, she choked to death. Do you know how to save yourself in a similar situation if you’re alone?
Here’s a video that may save your life.
Here’s another video using a different technique if you’re alone. Note, this video also teaches you how to perform the Heimlich technique as well.
One last thought, if home and near a phone, dial the emergency services and leave the phone off the hook. They usually respond if they hear noises in the background. Then proceed to use the techniques described.
