One child chokes to death every 5 days in the US. Basic emergency medical training should be taught in schools.
Was sent to me by a contact on Linked. Not sure where the data comes from but with the ability to learn a simple and effective maneuver, the Heimlich, very easy to teach and to learn, these could be prevented.
I have taught hundreds, if not thousands, BLS/CPR which includes dealing with choking victims..
"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws." -Ayn Rand in Atlas Shrugged
