Mum’s Little Guardian Angels Use Life-Saving Skills – Ballarat Courier
Miners Rest brothers, Connor (8) and Sam (10), have been hailed as Mums two little guardian angels after a sudden health emergency in the home called for First Aid.
Mother, Sarah Algie’s, health took an unexpected turn for the worse one morning before school and caused her to lapse into unconsciousness.
Thankfully, both Connor and Sam had recently completed the First Aid in Schools Program with St John Ambulance (Victoria) and knew exactly what to do.
They approached the situation with confidence and immediately applied their knowledge and skills learnt from the free community program.
