St John's Ambulance #thechokeables


As a parent one of my biggest fear is the children choking, it could be on food, or on little objects. But, do you know what to do if your baby does choke? 

St John Ambulance, believe that everyone should have the skills and confidence to know what to do in an emergency. Knowing basic first aid can be the difference between life and death – and every week they hear of new people whose lives have been saved because someone nearby knew what to do.

40% of parents asked by SJA have witnessed their own baby choke and when almost four-fifths don’t know what to do in this situation so they have put together a short and effective video called The Chokeables which demonstrates how to help a choking baby. Featuring the voices of David Walliams, David Mitchell, Johnny Vegas and John Hurt, the celebrities take on the characters of animated objects that could potentially choke babies.

The video hopefully will help spread awareness and most importantly save lives - at just 40 seconds long, this is a must watch! What you can learn watching this short clip is invaluable.
