Has unexplainable choking. Breathlessness and lost control on body. Sounds harmful?

My niece who is 3 yrs old has had 3 choking episodes now where she does not have anything in her mouth that she can choke on. She has no body control and cant breath . The second time she frothed at the mouth but only that time. She brings up a little bit of mucous or food that is in her stomach but she doesnt full on vomit . She also soils her pants.

Hello and welcome to HCM
I am General and Family Physician and wants to help you out. In my opinion she might suffering from fits as per your explanation in the mail. But needs to be investigated. Consult your nearby Neurologist and get your CT head or EEG done as per his advice.
Don't try to give her orally during the episode till she is fully conscious and if she vomit or mucus comes in mouth than turn the head to right or left side so that this does not enter in the respiratory tract.
Consult your Neurologist as early as possible.
Best Wishes
