LifeVac Used to Save 3-Year-old Boy from Choking on a Nut – #190
LifeVac is excited to share news of our 190th life saved.
A 3-year-old boy choked on a metal nut causing partial airway obstruction. The little boy was coughing, choking, and then gasping for air. The child’s mother attempted back blows to dislodge the obstruction but attempts were unsuccessful. She called 911! While on speaker with the operator providing the home address she ran to the cabinet and grabbed the LifeVac. She used the LifeVac and in the second Place, Push, Pull motion the nut was dislodged. “We were able to clear the blockage and cancel the ambulance call, although the sheriff’s department did show up a few minutes later just to check on us. I don’t even want to think what could have happened if we didn’t have the LifeVac!”
