A Lakewood mother today wants to bring awareness after her toddler choked on a piece of a candy dispenser.
The mother tells TLS she found her two-year-old choking on the top piece of the dispenser, and called Hatozlah.
By the time Hatzolah arrived, the piece had fully gone down and the child was breathing, the mother says.
“It’s not hard for a child to bite it off,” the mother said.
Hatzolah ensured the child was able to breath and drink properly, and the child did not require hospitalization.
Earlier this month, a Lakewood child was hospitalized in critical condition after choking on a candy toy. The child B”H made a miraculous recovery, and the candy has since been pulled from the shelves.
