A now-viral video shows a woman rushing into a restaurant and saving a little boy from choking to death. Stick around for more details.


When it comes to parental fears, one of the biggest is choking. It’s nerve-wracking and scary to give your little ones solid food; there’s a very real possibility that choking can occur at any time and at any age. But if you take the proper precautions, you can help reduce your child’s risk of choking.

Take it from TikTok creator Charis Putmon (@itscharislove), who recently shared footage of the time she saved a little boy from choking to death at a restaurant. We don’t know about you, but she’s a hero in our eyes!

The Heart-Stopping Moment

In the nearly 40-second video posted on TikTok, a mom holds her son in her arms before realizing he’s choking. She immediately sets him down, reaches into his mouth, and urges him to “spit it out.” Panicking, she calls for help as she and her husband do all they can to help their son.

Just when things seem dire, a group of people walk into the restaurant, and one of the women, Charis, springs into action to help. One of Charis’s friends tells the couple that she’s a nurse and will save their son — and that she does. Without hesitation, Charis performs the Heimlich maneuver on the child, and just seconds later, he spits out the item causing the obstruction.

The boy’s sobbing mom immediately embraces Charis as the rest of the group checks up on the young boy. In the end, everyone exchanges hugs — and we’re left crying at our phone screens.
