THIS is the dramatic moment a quick-thinking mum saves her toddler from choking to death - as the family’s TV night takes an unexpected turn. A family of five was captured on CCTV footage while sitting watching TV in their lounge room, when the toddler, who was sitting on the floor, appeared to put something in his mouth. The young boy can then be seen putting his hands over his mouth, at which point his mother springs into action, realising that something isn’t right. The mum stood him up and leant him over, while tapping his back. The object appears to be released from the toddler’s mouth, and he miraculously stops choking. The video was shared by Tiny Hearts Education , an Australian organisation running first aid courses for new parents, as a cautionary message for parents about the dangers of children choking on small objects. “This is hard to watch, but this is real life,” the caption read. “Because this Mama knew basic first aid, she could spring into … [Read more...] about Dramatic moment quick-thinking mum saves toddler from choking to death as family watched TV

The 2021 Budget will feature everything from booze, fuel and cigarettes to wages, housing and Britain's Covid response. Rishi Sunak is set to focus on four themes - "support, vision, recovery, honesty" - when he addresses the nation in his annual statement next Wednesday. The Tory Chancellor is tipped to extend furlough, the Stamp Duty cut and other Covid support by three months, and the £20-a-week Universal Credit uplift by six months. He will unveil grim financial projections on Britain's economy and begin to sketch a vision for how it'll be made better post-vaccine - with grants of up to £18,000 for lockdown-battered firms to reopen. He could announce a string of other measures to help the economy recover - though some of these, like schemes to push people back into shops and restaurants, may not come until later.

For the medics on the frontline of the pandemic life will never be the same again. They have witnessed whole families fight for their lives, seen loved ones torn apart and dealt with staff on the brink of breakdown - and all while enduring their own personal battles. Now, a new film, by Emergency Medicine Doctor, Saleyha Ahsan, exposes the true toll that the pandemic has taken on workers at her hospital, Ysbyty Gwynedd, in Bangor, through the destructive second wave of the virus between November and February.
