If you’re a mother to a young baby (and any aged child, for that matter) there is no doubt that you have completely driven yourself crazy thinking of anything and everything that can happen to your little one. Choking is most probably high on that list, since curious children just seem to love putting things in their mouths.
St. John Ambulance (UK) shared some frightening statistics: over 40% of the parents they spoke to have actually seen their baby choke, while a worrying 80% simply did not know what to do in such a situation. This prompted St. John Ambulance to make this short, clever, educational and life-saving awareness video, The Chokeables, to teach parents how to save a life.
The Chokeables in question—the innocent-looking pen lid, jelly baby, marble, princess toy and peanut—are aware of their hazard status, and thus show you exactly what to do should you ever find your baby choking on one of them. This is a video that needs to be watched and shared so that absolutely everyone—even those who aren’t parents—will be able to react correctly if they ever find themselves on a scene where a young life needs saving.
