When the story happens to you

image

I have been a nurse for 35 years and taught many classes on CPR, AED, and 1st aid skills. However, it is always different when the "story" happens to YOU. One day I was driving my son and his friend home from baseball practice. They were in the back seat buckled up! I just happen to take a glance in my rear view mirror to see my son's friend holding his neck and turning blue. I immediately pulled over, "grabbed the 8 year old child out of the cars seat and wrapped my arms around his abdomen as I thrusted with my fisted hands one time, as a large disc of cinnamon candy went flying across the yard. He cleared his throat with a slight cough and said, "thanks, I needed that"......It was a very calming peaceful event knowing a simple skill that saved a life of a child!
