While people who undertake first aid training don’t always have the chance to use it, teacher Simon Underwood put his skills to the best-possible use.

When Mr Underwood came across a toddler in a stream face down and who had stopped breathing, he jumped in, carried her to the bank, called an ambulance and administered first aid while waiting for help to arrive.

Officials later praised his actions, saying he undoubtedly had saved the little girl’s life.
