This week, Despierta América had its audience on the edge of their seats when one of their beloved hosts, Raúl González, fell to the ground unexpectedly. However, the incident was not a full-fledged fainting, but a faked one.
The purpose of the staged scenario was to teach the audience how to react in emergency situations where someone has fainted. Karla Martínez, who was present with Raúl, explained that they wanted to showcase how to give first aid if and when required.
To emphasize the importance of first aid knowledge, a specialist on the subject was invited to conduct a CPR class while Raúl remained in his fainting mode. The scene was so realistic that some followers became apprehensive initially, but they were reassured after understanding the purpose behind it.
“Is he acting? It was not noticed,” wrote some users of the networks. “This is very helpful,” another added.
Raúl is entirely healthy, and it was a staged incident aimed at creating public awareness regarding the importance of first aid education in saving lives. Despierta América’s initiative should be an inspiration to everyone to learn basic first aid, as it can significantly impact the outcome of an emergency.
