There’s an important video that has been doing the rounds on Facebook that could save your life – literally! You could use this video as a tool to teach your kids the recovery position.


Posted by sutflute on Thursday, 11 February 2016


I found this video very powerful and incredible how the child moved the adult into the recovery position before seeking help.

Do your kids know what to do if they found a person unconscious?

Show your kids and get them to practice. Hopefully they’ll never have to use it but if faced with an emergency, they’ll be armed with the knowledge to help you or someone else.

  • Whata shame the video has now been removed :(


  • I remember learning it in kindy.


  • it would be great if kids were taught the first aid course at school. Get the knowledge out there to help make more capable citizens


  • Wonderful, thanks for sharing, very important and beneficial.


  • Great. Thanks for sharing. Also important to watch this regularly.


  • Excellent video. One all parents, teachers and children should watch, it may save a life!


  • What a great idea! we all do the first aid thing but then forget that sometimes we’re the ones who need it!


  • Have immediately shared this as a couple of weeks ago when my mum was babysitting my son, she passed out. We are now making sure he understands when and how to ring 000 and what information to give them. Teaching him this also would be really beneficial. I think knowing what they are to do, will really help a child in an emergency situation such as this.


  • I found this video useful myself. Well done to the little boy who has it down pat.


  • Wow, I’m impressed with the child !


  • A powerful message – we had a friend who had epilepsy and so this training would have been good to have had in those days.


  • This was very powerful in it’s message.
