It’s Every Parent’s Worst Nightmare…
In a split second they watch their happy and healthy baby take a dangerous turn as they start choking on a small object or their food.
While 40% of parents will watch their baby choke at some point, statistics reveal that only 1-in-5 parents will actually know what to do. This means that, out of the 34 children that have to be treated daily for choking, 80% of their parents will be unable to properly help their child.
One organization is stepping up to make a difference and give parents the tools they need to help their choking baby. St. John Ambulance has expanded their outreach by providing an online video that explains how to help a baby that is choking.
