In 2020, Ontario Police Chief Tommy Hill made a decision that would ultimately save a young life. He invested in a rescue tool called LifeVac, a device designed to remove obstructions from a choking victim’s airway.
Not every officer has this tool, but thanks to Chief Hill’s foresight, his officers were equipped to handle a situation that unfolded in a matter of minutes, ultimately saving a child’s life.
The Ontario Police Department received a distress call that no one ever wants to hear: a child was choking.
Responding swiftly, Officer Rod Roos arrived at the scene with the LifeVac in hand, not fully knowing the critical role it would play that day.
Upon arrival, Officer Roos found a two-year-old child in desperate need of help. The young one had accidentally swallowed a plastic toy, causing a complete blockage of the airway.
Panic and fear filled the room as the child struggled to breathe. The situation was dire, and every second was vital.
Officer Roos wasted no time. He quickly used the LifeVac. The LifeVac works by creating a strong suction to dislodge obstructions from the airway without causing harm to the victim.
In this high-stakes situation, the LifeVac proved to be a game-changer.
A Race Against Time
Within moments, Officer Roos had successfully removed the plastic toy from the child’s airway, allowing them to breathe freely once again. The relief everyone felt was immeasurable, and a crisis had been averted.
LifeVac’s 1061st Life Saved
This incredible rescue marked a significant milestone for LifeVac. The device had now saved 1061 lives in choking emergencies, including this young child’s.
