A brave boy saved a girl’s life after she suffered a seizure in the water.
Richie Payne, 11, had been swimming and returned to the water in Mousehole harbour after falling over and getting sandy. He soon spotted the 10-year-old, who was having an epileptic seizure, and rushed to her aid.
“I saw the girl swirling around so I swam over,” he said. “I took her mask off and she was foaming at the mouth and her lips were blue. It was quite scary.”
I have had epilepsy for 40 years… It is frightening enough for us to go through a seizure, but you were an absolute star and managed to rescue someone who during the course was out of control!
I am so proud of you!
Keep up the good work!
Great job Richie saving her life. I have had seizures for 23 years and am grateful for every time someone has saved my life. The victim will be grateful forever. You will always be a hero in her eyes.
Thanks for helping another epileptic.
