Imagine being all by yourself, enjoying a snack or a meal when in an instant, something becomes lodged in your throat, preventing you from breathing. The panic and sheer terror in that moment, knowing you are choking to death would be completely overwhelming. In those first few seconds when breathing is impossible, your mind would surely race as to what you need to do to end the horror you are in.
Luckily, there is something you can do that could save your life. Colorado firefighter and paramedic Jeff Rehman has devised a technique from his years of training as a boxer that allows someone who is alone to potentially save his or her own life.
The technique is relatively simple and one where relief can be obtained within seconds. This is an important video and could very possibly, one day, save your life if you find yourself in this terrible situation.
