I performed the Heimlich maneuver once, in a restaurant. A woman was choking on pizza. It was quite a rush.
Not that I know for sure, but I may have through my actions a few times. Nothing as dramatic as pulling someone from a burning building or car, or even using the Heimlich maneuver or CPR, though.
I've definitely saved the lives of some non-human animals...
I do every single day in the morning and evening commutes by not letting road rage get the best of me. Where's my medal?
Do you happen to still have that soccer participation trophy? Shine it back up!
Don't mock my achievement. I'm proud of my soccer trophy...
Thanks for responding Trooper.
OK - I've seen three of you answer yes with nothing further to add. Now, maybe it's a modesty thing, or maybe a traumatic thing, but a little more detail might make the thread more interesting.
Yes...My cousin was choking.
Yes, a baby choking on a biscuit and another baby choking on a large piece of ice.
I saw my high school principal twenty years after graduation. I decided there was nothing to gain by beating him to death, so I let him live. If it had been the assistant principal, I would not have been that easygoing.
I've tried and failed. More than once.
No I haven´t but would help out as much as I could I was in a situation like that.
