Famous actors star in choking baby advert
Stars offer their voices to safety campaign aimed at saving the lives of babies.
According to the St John Ambulance organisation, the UK’s biggest first aid training group, 40% of parents interviewed had witnessed their babies choking. When asked about first aid techniques for choking intervention, four out of five had no idea what to do. The organisation then put together a short video to provide a very basic first aid technique so that parents would know what to do in the event of a choking incident.Star power
They chose their voiceover artists wisely: Sir John Hurt, Johnny Vegas, David Mitchell and David Walliams star in #TheChokables. An animated short ad which shows objects which are often behind choking events offering first aid tips. A ballpoint pen lid, a marble, a peanut and a princess toy explain (with humour) what to do if your baby chokes on an object.
It’s actually a brilliant concept, and we hope it gets shared as much as they hope it will.Watch: #TheChokables advert: save a choking baby via St John Ambulance/YouTubeFirst aid tips

It’s also a great idea to have a stocked first aid kit in the home.Kids and first aidFirst aid must-havesTravel first aid kitDo you know basic first aid?
