Girl, 9, receives bravery award after saving her father’s life when his heart stopped

A quick-thinking nine-year-old girl has received a bravery award after saving her father’s life when his heart stopped. Izzy McCarron, from Chapel-en-le-Frith in Derbyshire, came to the rescue when her father Colm collapsed after suffering a mystery allergic reactionThe youngster attempted CPR but then stamped on her father’s chest when she realised her arms were not strong enough.

‘I just kicked him really hard,’ she told the Matlock Mercury. ’My mum taught me CPR but I knew I wasn’t strong enough to use hands. I was quite scared. The paramedics said I might as well be a doctor or a nurse. My mum said that he was going to hospital with a giant footprint on his chest.’

Her mother, Debbie, who called 999, said her daughter was ‘a little star’. ‘I was really upset but Izzy just took over,’ she said. ‘I just can’t believe what she did. I really think all children should be taught first aid. Izzy did CPR then the paramedics turned up. He had to have two adrenaline shots on the way to the hospital and he’s now been given an EpiPen and we’ve got to see a specialist.’

Doctors believe her father may have developed anaphalaxis, a serious allergic reaction that can cause death. Her father has since made a full recovery and Izzy recieved an award for ‘outstanding bravery’ from her school.
