Along with it, he also showed the ‘Recovery Position’ of a victim after regaining his sense with CPR, which helps to keep the airway open and reduces risk of breathlessness. He finally ended his presentation by showing Heimlich Manoeuvre which is applied to remove any particles stuck inside the trachea/ wind pipe. Then we gave a Tiffin break for the participants which Save Life Foundation arranged. After the break, all the participants practiced CPR on two Mannequins. It was a three & a half hours program which ended with great appreciations from the participants. Unfortunately, due to some unrest in the state, number of participants were less than it was promised by the police authorities. Inspector General was at Singur SP Office for some official work for which all the senior officials of Singur Rural Police were busy in a meeting with him. So, some officials like Superintendent of Police, Shri Tathagata Basu, IPS, Additional Superintendent of Police Shri Raj Narayan Mukherjee, IPS, SI Kaushik Das, Reserve Inspector, SI Suman Mondal, Multi Tasking Officer and other senior officials were unable to attend our programme.
