This first aid blanket provides a general guideline of how to save someone's life in the case of an emergency or accident.

The blanket was designed by students at Zhejiang University in China and has won a 'Red Dot' award for conceptual design. It would work to provide general instructions on how to save people's lives in the event that they had been close to drowning and needed CPR performed on them. The first aid blanket provides a human silhouette, instructions and a flap that pulls over the person who needs saving and provides a guideline on where to place the hands to provide CPR.

This unique blanket could be positioned around beaches and public swimming pools in the event that a lifeguard is not immediately available when a person is in need.
