While parents might be proficient in Paediatric First Aid,there is always a degree of panic in these situations due to shock.Also in an older child it may not be easy to dislodge food as they are terrified and upset,and food has been lodged lower down.
If she passed out she probably needed resuscitation ..It’s a bit much expecting parents to have to deal with such an ordeal without medical support.The least you can expect is an ambulance for crying out loud.
