You were 7 and your neighbour 45... The extra force applied by him could have fractured your ribs causing trauma to your vital organs..

Psychiatrist Dr. Alok Ranjan's  Response
CARDIOPULMONARY RESUSTICATION RARELY CAUSES ANY TRAUMA OTHERWISE IT WOULD HAVE NOT BE INCLUDED IN MEDICAL EMERGENCY PROTOCOLS,UNLESS IT IS PERFORMED BY UNEXPIRENCE HAND,OR THE PERSON RECIEVING IT HAS SEVER OESTEOPOROSIS OF RIBS.
BUT,FOR PURPOSE OF PRACTICE OBJECTS LIKE DEMOS OR PILLOWS CAN BE USE.
FREE VOLUANTAIRY TRAINIG CAN BE OBTAINED FROM BODIES LIKE ST.JOHNS AMBULANCE.
EVERY PERSON IN SOCIETY MUST GET ADEQUATE KNOWLEDGE OF FIRST AID,THIS CAN SAVE MANY LIVES.
REMEMBER CPR IS ONLY A SUPPORTIVE MEASURE AND SHOULD NOT BE AUGUMENTED AS MAIN LINE EMERGENCY CARE!
