Last month, 12-year-old American Austen MacMillan was swimming in a pool with his behavioral therapist, Jason Piquette. While the latter was holding his breath underwater, he felt unwell. The young teenager quickly understood the seriousness of the situation, and he reacted perfectly.
“I want him to know that he is a hero”
On video surveillance, he can be seen pulling his eldest child to a shallower side of the water point then running for help. He then returns very quickly to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Austen MacMillan absolutely did not improvise this gesture. He actually learned it while spending time on Netflix.
“I just saw it in the series Stranger Things”, said l 'child. His behavior was beneficial. A few minutes later, in fact, the therapist regained consciousness. As our colleagues from the ABC channel explain, the procedure for modern CPR is perfectly shown in the first season of the series, even if it is supposed to take place in 1983.< /p>
Quoted by the American media, Jason Piquette's wife was full of praise for the teenager: “I'm amazed to see how strong he was and wise at that time. And I always want him to know that he's a hero..
Very clearly, we can see the positive impact of this pop culture phenomenon in the daily life of the public. But this incident, which ended well, also demonstrates the importance of training the general public in these life-saving actions.
Let us also remember that Android and iPhone phones offer an option that allows you to call the emergency, even when the screen is locked. An essential feature that can help avoid the worst.
Finally, we can note that the series Stranger Things will return for a highly anticipated final season 5 in 2024. The season 4 left us with unbearable suspense, and it's an understatement to say that we want to see the sequel. It remains to be seen whether the original Netflix creation will not be postponed due to the actors' strike which is still in full swing in Hollywood.
What to remember:
- An American teenager saved the life of his therapist who passed out in a swimming pool
