The year five Parkgate Academy pupil would normally have been at school but was instead at home, waiting to be taken to a dental appointment.

After using his computer in the lounge, Brandon walked into the kitchen to see if it was time to go to the dentist.

However, he was shocked to find his dad, Ricky, collapsed on the kitchen floor and his whole body twitching.

As quick as a flash, Brandon rushed to inform his mum, Sarah, who was in bed due to feeling unwell.

Immediately, Mrs Blow called an emergency ambulance.

Brandon kept watch at the door and let the paramedics in the house while Mrs Blow looked after her husband.

Mr Blow, who received urgent treatment at King’s Mill Hospital, said: “I’m arranging a secret trophy for Brandon as his quick thinking saved my life.

"I’m so glad he was at home on that particular day waiting for a dental appointment.”

Vice Principal at Parkgate Academy, Mr Reece Davy, also congratulated Brandon.

He said: “It was great to hear Brandon was able to help his Dad in such a way.

"We are very proud of Brandon’s quick thinking.”
