St. John Ambulance #thechokeables | Giveaway

#thechokeables
 
St. John Ambulance hope to raise awareness for parents and carers of the risks of choking and how to help a baby/child if they choke. I think all parents and carers should know the basics of First Aid just in case something does happen such as choking. Over 40% of parents told St. John Ambulance that they have witnessed their child choke but they quizzed the parents on First Aid, four-fifths of them don't know what to do in the situation.

St. John Ambulance have done a short 40 second video which include voices of celebrities such as David Walliams, Johnny Vegas, Sir John Hurt and David Mitchell. They each voice an object than can potentially choke a child such as - a pen lid, peanut, jelly baby and a small princess toy. This video send a strong message and could help and save a life.
