St John Ambulance believes that first aid can very often be the key to saving a life.
They claim that every year 150,000 people die in situations that could have been prevented by first aid.
That is why they released 'Popcorn', an interactive video that aired in a cinema with unsuspecting movie audience, shows just how quickly a life can be in danger.
In the video, a happy family is showed enjoying popcorn when one young child starts to choke. Both the mother and the father are panicked and have no idea what to do. An audience member from the movie cinema soon raises her hand and says she can help.
After some speculation about how to help a chocking person, SJA advised
that first back blows and then abdominal thrusts (or the Heimlich
manoeuvre) should be administered.
