Video: Grab Food to the rescue as child has medical emergency in traffic

Recommended Posts

Talk about stressful to watch, OMG, with that traffic what could you do.

 

I recall when my daughter was 2, she swallowed a Mentos lolly which her mum gave her without my knowledge, we were at Swampy and walking along, when our daughter started choking, I asked my wife whats wrong with her, what did she eat, and her reply was a Mentos, you could imagine me going to into shock after reading all the time how many kids choke on those round small battery's the size of a Mentos, but not as thick...fark me, I grabbed her, picked her up, and flipped her upside down and gave her a smack on the back as onlookers were wondering what the fark was going on, and it flew out, thank God with the little one crying.

 

The wife got a few words from me I can tell you, I will leave it at that.

 

But well done to all who assisted, sad to hear the bub has some brain function problem, and hope recovers to normal, because as he grows, he will get a serve of it from everyone else in this world 🙂

And 3 police cars, & an RRV, & a body to direct the traffic...&...

Lucky escape. There is a technique called the "heimlich manoeuvre" ... worth checking out on You Tube ... 

 

 

Yes well aware of that one, but was afraid to try it on her at 2 years of age, fearing I might have done some damage if I applied it too hard, everything was going through my mind, stay calm, don't panic, sheet, what if I can't dislodge it, and would have resorted to that, if the upside down shake didn't dislodge it, which it did thankfully.

No doubt if this was the UK, the driver would be facing a disciplinary for 'inappropriate use of a company vehicle'.

Or probably that he didn't submit a written 'elf and safety' assessment first.

With a child or someone small enough to tip upside down, better to do that to let gravity assist.

Yes, a pretty terrifying experience ... but with small kids it happens quite often. With heimlich the same technique applies but with more gentle force than you would use with an adult.
