Knowing exactly what to do, Colby saved his mum’s life with his quick actions.

‘When I woke up, I was quite shocked to realise he’d phoned the ambulance,’ said Jessica.

‘I’m very happy I’ve been nominated,’ said Colby after hearing about his nomination.

Saving his mum’s life by calling the emergency services Colby has become an emergency hero.
