Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a technique performed in medical emergencies, including heart attacks or nearly drownings, in which breathing and heartbeat have stopped. It can be a life-saving technique, but doing it incorrectly can be physically invasive for most victims and put their lives at risk.
The video of CPR being incorrectly performed on a child, an apparent drowning victim, was uploaded recently. People can be seen frantically trying to revive the child using various methods.
(Please be advised that the video contains sensitive scenes and may not suitable for all viewers.)
A woman can be seen cradling an unconscious young boy who was wearing a rash guard/swimsuit. Various onlookers try to revive the child to no avail. This tragedy happened in Florencia Seagull Beach, Philippines.
To properly deal with emergencies, learn basic first aid and basic life support at any Red Cross Center or any institution that provides the training. If you are not trained in CPR, do not attempt to perform it and instead place the victim in a safe area and call for help right away.
