An eight-year-old boy has been hailed for his “courage and quick thinking” after he was able to save the life of a family member who was suffering a medical emergency.
Logan Paul, from Pukekohe in rural south Auckland, recalled his basic first aid training and was able to recognise something was wrong when a family member needed immediate medical attention.
The Valley School year four student ran to seek help from his neighbour who called 111 for an ambulance.
His actions, earlier this year, meant his family member was able to get lifesaving treatment.
“I was very proud of the way Logan reacted, he was very calm and knew exactly what to do,” said his father, Matt Paul.
After seeking help from his neighbour, Logan called his father to tell him the ambulance was on the way.
“He said he wasn't as scared because he knew what to do, including getting help, knowing his full address, keeping the patient safe, and taking his sister outside when the paramedics arrived, to give them space.”
