I can't lie I have read many that I can't help but to call "BS" in my head. I know it ruins it but then I think, I can't be the only one who feels that way.

If he wasn't trained to help, or he panicked and didn't know what to do, the best he could've done is slap her back or call someone. However, if you were alone I'm sure you wouldn't call the ambulance as soon as somebody starts choking, so that explains why he wouldn't call.

47 is correct 17. Never ever slap someone who is choking on the back. If they are still breathing all slapping them on the back does is make them inhale sharply, lodging the item further in their throat. So long as the person is breathing ok, leave them be. If breathing becomes labored, use the himlech maneuver to help them cough it out. If they lose consciousness call 911
