148-He probably inhaled while eating which caused the food to go down the wrong pipe. It's not choking but many people call it that. Drinking stops the person's coughing a little bit.

wow 184 that's awesome you feel that way! too bad op is actually from Canada, which incidentally isn't America...

#184 In the UK we are pretty much right behind America for being strict about alcohol. We are also right behind America for alcohol related crime.. So you may want to get your facts straight before bitching about another country and, as others have said, get the right country.. My upbringing was pretty relaxed with alcohol and I don't drink. As a nation we are just as strict as America but with a lower drinking age..

Maybe not where you live.. Actually I know that's not the case where you live! Around the civilised areas of the UK people don't generally let their kids drink. I don't know a single person who was allowed to drink as a child or that allows their child to drink.

Just because you have a rich family doesn't make the rest of Birmingham civilized.. Also I smell BS, either that or you are just a totally stuck up bitch..

Smellymellyy, you're just a stuck up bitch. Do you think anyone on here is impressed about your "yacht" or your "holiday homes?" sorry to burst your bubble, but nobody gives a fuck.

The kid probably had food stuck in his oesophagus NOT his windpipe.. If this is the case he wasn't choking but may have looked like he was and it can be just as scary. If he was choking a drink would do nothing, he would not necessarily need abdominal thrusts though.

Do the heimlich manoeuvre goddamnit! And to you who said it's stupid to pat someone on the back: it's not, it's the first step and if that doesn't work you use the heimlich

#256 patting them on the back makes it worse, it actually pushes the food forward causing the person to choke for an extended period of time.

As any lifeguard or individual in the career of saving lives can tell you, if someone is making noises, ie: coughing, weezing, speaking faintly, yelling fuck constantly ect. they are not considered to be choking.

Reply

If the choking person is making noises from mouth, it usually means the person is still breathing. First Aid Solution: Let the person cough it out. Do not let choking person ingest anything. Do not let anyone touch choking person.

Reply

yeah I'm a lifeguard, and in our CPR/First Aid training, we were actively taught that if a victim is choking and coughing, let them cough until (a) they cough it up, or (b) they can no longer cough or breathe, THEN do something about it, like chest blows!

Reply

I train flight attendant first aid and I concur with all of this. If they are still making noise, they can still get it out themselves. Forcing someone to ingest anything else is the wrong move.

Reply

No joke right now. That's a load of bullshit. even if it was true, the food wouldn't break down fast enough to help somebody who's choking.

you guys are all retarded, (1) people call coca-coals cokes cause it's shorter, get over it (2) COKE is one of the most acidic drinks out there I don't remember the % but I do know it's higher than most and this guy is right it would break down the food but yeah it would take a while (3) watch as my comment gets thumbed down like crazy :P (4) ps there's nothing wrong with calling sodas cokes

119- Right. Because I bet you are perfect and have never sneezed and asked for a "Kleenex." Or asked your friends if they wanted to play "Frisbee," cleaned your ears with a "Q Tip," or applied "Chap Stick." They are colloquialisms. Get a grip.

People use 'coke' instead of 'cola' a lot.. Coke is coke, cola can be Pepsi, Coke or another brand. I hate going somewhere, asking for a coke and getting 'Is Pepsi OK?' No damn it.. I want a COKE!!

you acted out of panic so you didn't realize it was the logical thing to do no need to get all FML on it

omg...people, let's act smart and not correct everyone's grammatical issues. It is FML, not school...do you have nothing better to do?

Reply

u should shut up and go bitch at other people. if u havent noticed, there are things dumber than this on FML.

I just wanted to write the same thing... better giving a 8yr old boy some beer and he is not choking to death than waiting a minute too long (til water arrives)..and OP wrote she panicked!!! Hello? Her son couldn't breathe anymore - I'd say many of these onlookers wouldn't have checked as well what kind of drink you'd give to the child! (besides it could have been worse OP: it could have been harder stuff)

Reply

well if he couldn't breathe he wouldn't be ae go drink the liquid. in the event of choking and not breathing I think the heimlich would have been a good way to go...

92- your picture makes me laugh! why is there a big, confused looking head in the middle of a waterfall? XD

Reply

I agree, 94. By the way if I don't look at the close up pic of you, you kind of look like Spencer from pretty little liars.
