A video published by South China Morning Post reveals the importance of how knowledge can impact another person’s life. The video shows a passerby woman helping a choking teenager in a restaurant by performing the Heimlich Maneuver before leaving after she was sure that the teenager was safe from danger.
During the situation, the woman showed quick thinking and no panic as she saved the teenager from possible death. The boy’s father, who was immensely grateful that she saved his son, is currently looking for her as he wanted to thank her properly since she left without any thanks or acknowledgment.
This video reveals that not all heroes wear capes or titles. Anyone can help save another person’s life, so long as they have the knowledge and mindset to help them.
We should learn from this woman’s actions and study helpful medical information while also maintaining a strong demeanor to stabilize the situation and the people around us. By doing this, we would be more powerful as the knowledge within us could be used to help someone else when we least expect it.
The situation expresses that it is better to be prepared than to be unprepared. While it is helpful to call for help, sometimes it comes too late. Therefore, if we are equipped with the knowledge to save a person, with their permission, we can save more lives than risk losing one. Everyone has a part to play in the world. Why not save their part by studying to improve ourselves as well as others around us?
