Heimlich manoeuvre

Post by Stardust on Sun 08 Jan 2017, 16:03

This popped up in another thread so it's a chance to put up a video explaining how to do the Heimlich manoeuvre (or maneuver).

You never know when you might need it if someone near you starts choking.



By the way, he just died last month, 17th December 2016, aged 96.

OK, but the friend won't be able to speak because of choking and probably not even nod because of panic, and if you wait for a reply it might be too late. What a Face
