St John Ambulance And The Chokeables
There is currently a campaign #thechokeables which is aimed at raising awareness with St John Ambulance and The Chokeables, around the risks of children choking and how to help a choking child. St John Ambulance believe that everyone should have the skill and also the confidence to know what to do in an emergency.
I am sure that all of us parents share the same fear of our child choking – St John Ambulance have found that over 40% have witnessed their child choke and when quizzed on their first aid it was found that almost four-fifths didn’t know what to do in this situation which is pretty scary.
To help raise awareness St John Ambulance have made a short animation movie The Chokeables, this animated film features the voices of:
Sir John Hurt
St. John’s ambulance are asking for us all to share the film online to all help each other to possibly learn how to save a life. In The Chokeables the celebrities take on the characters of animated objects that could potentially choke a child: a small princess toy, a pen lid, a jelly baby and a peanut. They’ve joined together because they’ve had enough and want to show how easy it is to save a choking child.
Do you have 40 seconds to learn how to save a choking child, this video could make a big difference.

So true, I think a basic level of first aid should be taught right from a young age not only so we can look after over selves better but those around us too. Particularly young children, where we need to be a lot more catious!
Around 40%, and I’m in that 40. I have saved my youngest son a few times after attending a baby first aid course. Chances are he’d not be here if I hadn’t. X
Such a great and important campaign/giveaway! Must admit that I don’t think I’d know how to stop a child choking without the video.
