Foodstuffs account for over half the episodes of fatal choking among the under 5s, with grapes the third most common cause of food related choking after hot dogs and sweets. But public awareness of this potential hazard is not widespread, they say. They describe three cases of young children, all of whom required emergency treatment after eating whole grapes. http://bravesamuelperry.denaliinstitute.org/2016/09/30/some-new-challenges-for-fundamental-factors-in-course-for-medical-interviewOne case involved a 5 year old who started choking while eating whole grapes at an after school club. Prompt and appropriate attempts to dislodge the grape didn’t work and the child went into cardiac arrest. The grape was later removed by paramedics, using specialist equipment, but the child died. In the second case, a 17 month old boy was eating sandwiches and fruit with his family at home, when he choked on a grape. Attempts to try and dislodge it were unsuccessful and the emergency services were called. The grape was eventually removed by a paramedic but the child still died.
