Heimlich maneuver - My Dad Saved Me, I Saved My Brother, My Brother Saved Me...

Uploaded by ramjnkns on Apr 06, 2002

Certain lessons that a child learns earlier in life will have a great effect on them later in life. For example, if a child learns to share at an early age that child will learn how not to be selfish later in life. Since children are known for getting into things that they have no business doing people should learn life saving techniques The Webster dictionary defines the phrase Heimlich maneuver as "an emergency skill used to dislodge an object stuck in the windpipe by applying pressure to the abdomen below the ribs".

I was standing in the kitchen next to the counter eating a hotdog and before i knew it I swallowed a piece of hotdog without chewing it first.

As soon as my dad dislodged this object from my airway I turned around and gave him a hug for saving my life. After all was said and done little did I know that I was going to have to turn around and perform the same thing on my younger brother.

Second, later on in life I did not think that I would have to use this skill, until my brother choked on a piece of candy. The day that my brother had this incident he brought a twenty-ounce soda and a bag of mints. While my grandmother was paying her gas my younger brother put a piece of candy in his mouth and drank some of his soda right behind it and accidentally swallowed the mint without thoroughly chewing it which caused the mint to block his air path....
