About an hour ago my 2 year old daughter swallowed a 5 cent piece and wasn’t able to breathe. The look on her face was terrifying. Thankfully, you helped me be prepared and know what to do. After the 5 back blows she spluttered, wretched and must’ve gotten the coin out of her airway as she started breathing again. It was honestly the most terrifying thing I’ve been through with my kids.

Thanks again for giving me the information to be able to handle the situation.


I was amazed at how logical and simple so many first aid steps for various situations are! Things have changed since learning all those complicated and confusing procedures in P.E. at high school! After realising how simple (and obviously life-changing) first aid really is I cannot help but wonder why it isn’t compulsory for everyone to learn first aid! The fee is peanuts when compared to the value of what is learnt.
