What should you do if a person is choking and unable to breathe speak or cough?

The Heimlich Maneuver is something you can do to help a choking person. Get behind the person, wrap your arms around their chest, and grab one fist with your other hand. Place your hands just above their belly button. Quickly thrust your hands upwards and inwards into the person's chest. Repeat until the object is dislodged or the person becomes unconscious.

If the person is unconscious or exceptionally large, you can do a similar maneuver by laying them flat on their back and pressing the heel of your hands firmly into their chest at the same area at the same angle.

Always remember to call for emergency help.
