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
