Eleven-year-old boy uses first aid training to save his pregnant mum’s life

An 11-year-old boy helped save his mum’s life by calling triple zero.

His pregnant mum was having violent convulsions, so Tommy sprang into action.

Neil Mitchell spoke with Tommy, who says he feels quite proud he was able to save her.

“It got so bad we had to call triple zero.” – Tommy told 3AW Mornings.

Tommy relied on the first aid training he received at school.

His mum Renae says without a doubt Tommy saved her life.

She told Neil Mitchell – “I don’t know where I would have been…”

“He does a lot of things that are beyond his years, and for that I’m proud of him.”

Renae says she looks forward to where he progresses in life.

St John’s Ambulance wants to have every primary school student first-aid trained by 2020.

Great work from another young hero. The sooner schools train first aid to all students the better. It shouldn’t take this long to have t added to the curriculum. Contact us at Canberra First Aid and we can book you in to one of our hands on first aid courses located at the Dickson Tradies.
