Here we publish the instructions for how to respond in this situation. It’s definitely worth reading them – one day they may just save your life.
Jeff Rehman, a fire medic with 22 years of experience, came up with an effective way to save yourself in such difficult situations.
Here are the key points:
- Don’t panic. Remain calm as much as you possibly can.
- Kneel on the ground, with your body held vertically over the ground by your arms.
- Sharply pull away your arms and fall onto the ground hard with your torso. The hard blow to your chest will force out a large amount of air from your lungs, and at the same time expel whatever’s obstructing your air flow.
