    I couldn't watch the ad but I get the idea.

    Pretty unnecessary and way over the top. I really can't handle this type of stuff and I have a FA cert.

    Can i ask for people, mainly those in WA who don't think it should be aired, to put a complaint to the ombudsman about this ad please? I really don't like watching it and the more complaints made the better really.

    Do I find it confronting? Yes. However I would hope that it will touch those who do not have a first aid cert to seek out getting one. While you would be able to pull your child out the water, do you know what to do next? It is about breaking the barrier while waiting for paramedics to arrive.

    Would you find it as in your face if they showed a car accident victim and it was an adult? You as the bystander can't open the door? Because it takes less than 2 minutes for an obstructed airway to take the life of someone in a car accident. It's that first aid barrier again.

    Wow, full on. I think it 's unnecessary and mould be far more effective to go around teaching first aid in schools/workplaces.

    This ad makes my stomach churn. I definitely had a physical response to watching it. Felt very anxious.
    So I guess if that's what they were trying to do to get people to do their first aid course then it worked.

    However. ..I think an ad showing how first aid can help in the same situation would be more effective. With a positive outcome... Would be WAY more effective.
    Eg... mum grabs son out of the pool.. puts him on his side/checks his airway.. calls 000. Then assists him etc by doing mouth to mouth or cpr etc.
    Could still be scary and a bit full on but I think would have more impact.

    And as pp said... often people freeze in these situations anyway so even if the mum had first aid training she may do that anyway. And where's the message to run and call 000? Shouldn't that be important? No one would do 'nothing' as the ad says.

    This is exactly what I wanted to write last night! Imagine that ad but way less graphic, but it's like a family friend who gives the little kid first aid, and the ambulance come and say something like 'you're a hero - you saved his life' and they just have something like 'this could be you' up on the screen. How much more empowering would that be?

    Yes, I would. There have been ads like that on here before. After losing my best friend in a car accident, those ads have caused me to have a panic attack - even 15 years later.

    No it has not convinced me, in fact it has invoked negative feelings towards the organisation. I have not done the course but I am confident i know what to do. There is more than one way to get first aid education (edited)/knowledge.

    This ad is hard for adults to watch, what about the kids with less resilience who watch it. Because let's face it, it is on free to air TV during the day as well as at night. The only real difference is the night time one is an extended version showing the boy actually hitting his head. My 9 year old DD looks away at fight scenes on a Disney movie, this ad is far worse than any Disney movie.

    And I'm not going to restrict her TV viewing further because of 1 ad.

    I would but it's different in that a car accident has other obstacles other than first aid. A car is made of metal and can be bent and twisted making first aid possibly difficult to physically impossible and that's without adding leaking fuel and sparks to the mix.

    I too lost a friend to a car accident and I understand the point you are trying to make but I don't think the comparisons are quite the same.

    If you don't mind me asking, what other ways are there to gain first aid training - other than going through other organisation I mean.
