Boy Dies in Eating Contest
Posted 2/18/10 , edited 2/22/10
So apperently this kid entered some boy scout contest to eat a hotdog covered in whip cream and it was a benefit to support haiti.

http://cbs2.com/tv/fund.noah.akers.2.1471909.html

what i dont get is how no one around the boy scout even knew Heimlich considering its something you learn in boyscouts and have to practice on a dummy. also at one point the father says "we decided to take him off life support" now i dont know anything in relation to how you treat certain medical conditions but how does choking on a hotdog lead to being put on life support. shouldnt he have died once no one helped him from choking?

i just dont understand this story
another video with an article:

So it says that someone did perform the Heimlich maneuver, but Paramedics ultimately had to use an extended pair of forceps to remove the hot dog. He was alive when taken to the hospital, but had been without oxygen for too long, thus him being removed from life support. They said the kids were being supervised, but if that were the case than maybe he wouldn't have choked.

Well that sucks... It happens. I guess you can't really blame anyone. Seems like it was a freak accident.

o.o Current First Aid training teaches NOT to do the Heimlich, it was deemed too dangerous a few years ago...

If someone is choking you bend them forwards at the waist to 90 degrees and make them cough, with sharp blows between the shoulder blades. The Heimlich can break ribs and rupture internal organs. It never did a good job of relieving a choking patient anyway.

Tough luck about the kid, but an eating contest for starving people is like an orgy for chastity...
