Cincinnati, Ohio blogger and Green Party candidate for Board of Education Jason Haap unleashed a scandal when he criticized the Save-A-Life Foundation on his blog. He said that they were teaching schoolchildren to use the Heimlech maneuver on drowning victims, which is not the proper proceducre. The Save-A-Life Foundation subsequently lost 11 “relationships” with other organizations and sued Haap and two other critics (one is a doctor and one is the son of the inventor of the Heimlech maneuver).
On September 17th, the organization folded. After 16 years, the Save-A-Life Foundation is no more, and Haap continues to run the Cincinnati Becaon website and run for the Board of Education.
