Mother Reunites With Ottawa Hospital Nurse Who Used Cpr To Save Her Choking Toddler

Katie Cleary has always favoured the free samples at Costco in Barrhaven. So she didnt think twice when frozen strawberries were on offer April 19 she took one for herself and gave one to her two-year-old toddler, Van. Van looked startled by the cold of the treat. Its cold, its cold! Cleary told him. But then realized the shock wasnt from the cold it was because he was choking. A Costco employee took to the intercom and asked for anyone with first-aid training to go right now to the frozen food aisle. Sophie Barrette, 35, was in the bread aisle with her six-year-old daughter when she heard the urgent appeal. She ran to the frozen food aisle where a crowd had gathered she saw two men holding Van upside down, thumping his back. Barrette, who had spent eight years in the hospitals intensive care unit, took charge.
