At an incident, a small child isn't breathing. What should you do to try and help?

A Open their airway and begin CPR
If a young child has stopped breathing, first check that their airway is open and then begin CPR. With a young child, you may only need to use one hand and you shouldn’t press down as far as you would with an adult. Continue the procedure until the child is breathing again or until a medical professional takes over.
B Find their parents and get permission to help
C Put them in the recovery position and slap their back
D Talk to them confidently until an ambulance arrives
