“I continued chest compressions for what seemed like forever and I was thinking this kid is going to die.”
It was a typical vacation to St. Louis for SOS Technologies sales representative Scott Carter and his family. But a trip to the pool area of the hotel he was staying in would prove to be anything but normal. In this video, Scott describes how even a first responder like him was temporarily caught off guard by the chaotic event of a 5-year-old boy drowning.
What certainly didn’t help matters? The hotel had no AED on hand.
While the outcome was positive this time, another time might’ve been much different. The fact is, every business needs a Philips HeartStart AED combined with CPR training to give the victim the best chance of survival. Make sure it’s not something you simply get around to one of these days – because one day may be too late. Besides the products available to you right here on our site, feel free to talk to SOS about your best options on Philips AEDs and how to get your team quickly trained on CPR – call us today at 888.705.6100.
