123 CPR is a family owned and operated company; when our son/grandson was thought to have swallowed a watch battery after finding one in his mouth this past summer, we sprung into action, rushed him to the emergency room and he was immediately given x-rays to determine that he didn’t swallow one, thank goodness!

But symptoms and reactions to scorpion stings present themselv...
