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!

Have you ever performed CPR on a real person? What was the outcome? I performed CPR on my colleague who collapsed in the office. We were from different department and when I got to his office, his face was purple and his mouth and eyes were open. There was no pulse or breathing. No one else was first-aid trained so I had to do it. It looked like he was already gone but nevertheless I did the CPR. I remembered the steps very clearly eventhough my First-Aid cert had expired for about 1 year. After a while, the paramedics and doctor arrived. Unfortunately he didn t make it in the end.
