4-Year-Old Autistic Boy Saved with LifeVac – #277
LifeVac is thrilled to share news of our 277th life saved.
It was reported to us that on January 29th a 4-year-old autistic boy, choked on a bagel causing a total obstruction. The child’s grandmother reported the choking Incident that took place at her daughter’s home. Choking rescue procedures were performed but were unsuccessful. Thankfully, they had a LifeVac and with 1 attempt successfully dislodged a huge piece of bagel (approx. 4 inches) saving his life. 911 was called. The fire department was first to respond and then paramedics. The child was examined and given a clean bill of health. “His oxygen levels were great.” They showed the first responders the LifeVac device and to their surprise, the paramedic has a LifeVac for his family.
“He is alive and perfect thanks to LifeVac. I’ll never stop singing your praises.”
