  • I think ALL new parents and grandparents (if they will be caring for said grandchildren) should be required to learn infant/toddler CPR and basic First Aid, which includes the Heimlich Maneuver.

    I have been teaching such Red Cross courses for over 25 years, and I know that I have given people the tools they have needed to save the lives of their loved ones.

  • This is really sad, but I hope that another parent can learn from this. This is a perfect example of why ALL parents should learn first aid/CPR. Also, another reason why emergency services should not be the first to go with budget cuts!
