Summer is far from over and a lit of people are still planning on having a late summer adventure or swimming trip. It's the time to destress, have fun, and get a much needed rest. But, what if during the course of the fun and excitement, something unexpected happens?
Someone shared their nerve-wracking experience that almost made their summer trip a no-more. .
"My family and I went out of the country two summers ago to celebrate my Dad's birthday. We were happily strolling around, enjoying the sun and fresh air, and just having a good time. So imagine my horror when, just as we were about to take a family picture, my father collapsed and started having spasms. He was having a heart attack! I didn't know what to do and I panicked. I barely registered my Mom shouting for help and ordering me to call an ambulance. It was my younger sister who snapped me out of it. She pushed past me and knelt beside our parents. She was the one who performed CPR on our Dad. She was only 17 then but mind you, if she didn't act quickly, I don't even want to think of what would have happened. I never looked at her the same way again."
A week later, when she asked her sister how she knew what to do, "She said she remembered it from one of the seminars she attended in High School. I used to tease her for bothering to go to those seminar, but it actually saved our Dad's life. After that, our family decided to learn Basic Life Support ourselves and it was one of the greatest things I've learned. I wanted to make sure that if what happened to my Dad happens to someone, I will be able to help them."
Heart attacks and (heat) strokes can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere. It is like an earthquake, you have no time to prepare for it and you have no way of knowing when it's going to happen. The only thing you can control is how you will react during these situations. You don't even need to be a professional in order to save the life of someone from your family or a stranger. Being aware and knowledgeable about Basic Life Support is very useful in a lot of unexpected life or death situations.
