Some of us will have looked forward to this all year as for some reason, witnessing a group of celebrities tremble with fear as they are tormented with bugs, snakes and other critters as they complete bushtucker trials is guaranteed to brighten up our evenings.

You and a friend are eating lunch together and you suddenly see them grab their throat and begin to panic. You realise that they are, in fact, choking. Would you know how to help in this situation?

Choking occurs as a result of a partially or fully blocked airway.

A serious lack of airflow brought on by choking can cause brain damage or even death by asphyxiation.
