Sherbrooke Police Service (SPS) officers Kevin Cyr (left) and Vincent Lalonde (right) showed real presence of mind when they responded to a call Monday morning on Châteauguay Street to find a 28-year-old woman who had chocked on food and was unconscious.
When they realized the woman was not breathing, the patrolmen placed her on the ground and then began resuscitation manoeuvres. The two officers took turns doing rounds of CPR and were eventually able, using their fingers, to remove the food caught in the woman’s throat. After a few minutes, she began breathing again slowly regained her colour as she regained consciousness. The paramedics then took charge of the woman and she was taken to hospital to make sure she was out of danger.
