How to Tell If Someone Is Choking

According to the American Red Cross, if a person is unable to breathe, cough, speak, or cry, they are likely choking. They may wave their arms above their head or point to their throat to indicate they are choking. They even may start to turn blue from lack of oxygen.

In these instances, timing is everything. Brain damage starts after approximately four minutes without oxygen.
