Most people know more or less what to do if they saw someone drowning. The most common method would be to use the Heimlich Maneuver. But..

What should we do if we see that we ourselves are the ones who are drowning or suffocating, and there is no one nearby who can help us? This maneuver requires two people to perform it. So what would you do if you're alone?

Here are instructions on how we should act in a situation like that. It's important to keep that in mind – one day they could save your life.

Jeff Rehman, a firefighter and paramedic with 22 years of experience in America, discovered a really effective way to save your life in a complicated situation like that.

Here's what to do if you're drowning in an emergency:

First of all: Don't panic. Try to stay calm as much as possible. Kneel on the ground, holding your body horizontally (parallel to the ground) with your arms.

Now you have to quickly lift your arms up and fall on the ground hard to push the air out of your lungs.

That strong pressure on your chest will force a lot of air out of your diaphragm, and at the same time help expel what was obstructing your airway.

Share it with your friends. It could save more than one life!
