A woman saved 6-year-old boy by a swamp; the woman is now facing criticism for how she performed CPR. The little boy was turning green when he was found. The woman reveals she does not care about the criticism as her actions helped save a child back to life. A Facebook account named Namfon Greac Chotiga posted a video online showing a 6-year-old boy who had drowned in a swamp. The Facebook user posted “I was teaching my niece how to drive and ended up saving a boy. I was very lucky to find him while we were driving. He is now safe. I am thankful for what I learned in first aid classes”. The Facebook account owner is Somsat Nimit 53-year-old from Buriram Province.
Sommat arrived at the location and found a construction site worker carrying the child on his shoulders. She parked the car and found out the child had drowned. Sommat tried to save the boy and realized she received some first aid knowledge from when she was living in Norway. It was a requirement to take first aid classes when she was working as a maid at a hotel abroad. Sommat noticed the child’s skin was changing color and she had to take action. The woman started to perform CPR and the boy finally opened his eyes after about 2 minutes. She then started massaging his body before the boy coughed out rice and started moving his fingers.
Sommat was relieved as she knew the boy will continue to live. The woman admits she did not pay much attention in a class dedicated to help people who have drowned. Now she realizes how important medical knowledge is. The reason she told her niece to record a video is because she wanted to show her boss in Norway how useful the first aid classes have been. Sommat states “Those who commented how I performed CPR was wrong, I admit I am not that good. All I wanted was for the boy to wake up. This is the first time in my life saving someone. I didn’t think it was possible, honestly it is a miracle”.
