Quick thinking young son saves mother choking to death in Llantwit Fardre South Wales
The quick-thinking and calmness of a six-year-old Rhondda Cynon Taf student helped save his mother from choking, and all of his family, friends and teachers are extremely proud of him.
Zachary James, a Year 2 learner at Maesybryn Primary School, Llantwit Fardre, saw his mother coughing and struggling to breathe at home.
But he immediately knew what to do to assist her and began administering his first aid skills.
Councillor Susan Morgans, Mayor of Rhondda Cynon Taf, said: “We have remarkable learners and young achievers in all of our schools across the County Borough, none more so than young Zachary.
“The Council would like to commend him on his first aid and lifesaving skills at such a young age and send him our sincere congratulations on such a positive outcome.”
