Logan, 11, saves Grandad's life after heart attack

A schoolboy from Dover has been hailed a "little hero" by his grandfather after he saved his life.

Logan had joined the St John Ambulance Cadets a few days beforehand and had been taught basic life-saving skills.

Logan, who lives with his grandparents after his mother died eight years ago, was woken by his grandmother.

His knowledge about first aid saved his 71-year-old grandad, Paul Walsh, who had suffered a heart attack.

The 11-year-old noticed that his grandfather "wasn't himself" and immediately told his grandmother to call an ambulance.

Paul was put into the 'W' position and was taken to Ashford Hospital for treatment.

It was scary and I was worried because he's family, so it's a lot different. But then, I didn't want to show it because then my Nan would get even more worried and then it would have just been in complete chaos."

Paul was back on the ward within four hours of having the heart attack and believes he wouldn't be alive if his grandson hadn't been there to help.

Logan was presented with a national award in a ceremony presented by Rev. Richard Coles on Monday night.
