    that CPR saved his life? The bystanders were saying that he was breathing. In that case he didn’t need CPR

    I actually carried him out of the car. HE passed out and the car rolled to a stop. A few people called 911 and then once 911 said to carry him out, 2 people assisted me to carry him and put him on the grass. We found 1 bochur who knew cpr to start trying to revive him. we flagged down a passing ambulance who took over, then a fire truck came and then finally the ambulance that was dispatched. Took like 10 min for ambulance to respond.

      after he starts breathing again you put him on his side which is the recovery position

      If someone passes out and you don’t know if he was eating something and chocked, C”V the first thing you do is to turn the person on its side an check his mouth if anything i’s in there.
      Please everyone go learn CPR. I learned after my son chocked on something and I didn’t know what I was doing… bh I managed with what I knew, but c”v you don’t ever want that to happen to you…

      Exactly what the article is about. That everyone should do the CPR course and then you would be able to save lives and know what the putting him on his side is about.
