An eight-year-old St John Ambulance volunteer from Dorchester is taking a lead role in the charity’s Big First Aid Lesson later.
The story of how Sean Irwin looked after his mum, Caroline (29) when she fell six feet and knocked herself out cold is being featured in the live webcast.
Sean, who has been a St John Ambulance Badger in Dorchester for three years, feared his mum may have suffered a serious head, neck or spinal injury in the fall, so he checked her breathing and pulse, rather than putting her into the recovery position.
Caroline regained consciousness and was taken to hospital by her mum.
Almost 200,000 children in over 1,000 schools will watch the lesson during the webcast. For more information: www.sja.org.uk/bigfirstaidlesson
