Simbulance puts trainee paramedics through their paces and hones their life-saving skills

Paramedics have to make split second decisions to save lives. So it's important their training is as realistic as possible. Now, a specially-modified ambulance is being used here in the South East to simulate emergencies. Malcolm Shaw spoke to Student Nurse Amelia Poree, and Alex Ritchie, Clinical Simulation Technician.

The heroic toddler who saved her father's life

Would you know what to do if someone went into a diabetic coma? Well, fortunately for one man - his TWO-year-old daughter did!

Little Willow Bassett rushed to the rescue when her dad Jason suddenly collapsed at home. The youngster had been taught to give him sweets if he became ill but when that did not work, she stroked his head until her mum rang and she was able to raise the alarm.

Her actions have been praised by paramedics who treated Jason at his home in Southampton. Kerry Swain has been to meet the little lifesaver.
