Wow, my first first comment! And it wasn't buried by negativity! (To my fellow grammar Nazis: I know I shouldn't start a sentence with "and" but I'm feeling like being a bit lazy.)

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.

I dont get why Americans have such a serious and cynical view on alcohol. so what if he had.. BEER?!?! did he get drunk? did he get poisoned? well why care then? where I am kids taste their first alcohol by the age of about 8 anyway, I can't actually remember a time when I've never tried it. kids who are 15 and have never been drunk once are rare, although because our view is so relaxxed it takes the whole 'not-supposed-to-have-it' factor out of it and so people don't go wild and people drink it in moderation and with care. I'm 16 and have only been slightly drunk once, it was more borderline tipsy, but even that's unusual. i also don't even know any alcoholics either. but anyway, I just find the whole American strict view of alcohol a bit stupid and alcohol a bit overrated. it's fine for all ages as long as risks are known and cautions are taken and it's drunk in moderation.

#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.

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

Umm, no. Coughing when something stuck in the troath unables u to breath. Ergo, even if coughing, still choking.

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.

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.

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!

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.

You're one of those people who think a soda is called a coke. A Coke is a Coca-cola, a soda is the generic name for all of them. You guys sound dumb asking, 'I would love a coke, make is a Sprite."

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!!

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)

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...
