Shocking Numbers Dying From Lack Of First Aid

Posted on: January 14th, 2013 by Gemma

 

 Up to 150,000 people a year could be given a chance to live if more people were trained in first aid.

 

Thousands of people are dying each year in situations where first aid could have made the difference. This includes

 

  • 900 people who choke to death, 
  • 2,500 who asphyxiate from a blocked airway
  • 29,000 who die from heart attacks

 

First aid could make a huge difference in these situations, either through direct intervention, in the case of choking, or by recognising life-threatening signs, such as a heart attack, and caring for someone until medical help arrives.
