A five-year-old boy with autism dialled 999 and guided paramedics to his home after his mother fell unconscious while unpacking shopping.
Charley-Anne Semple, 27, has praised the actions of her son, Tyler, and he has been presented with a bravery award by the National Autistic Society.
Tyler’s three-year-old sister, Annabella, who also has autism and was home at the time, was also given an award.
Mrs Semple said she was at home in Thurrock, Essex, with her two children when she collapsed on September 21.
“I was home just putting some shopping away, which was the last thing I remember,” she said. “What I’ve been able to piece together and have been told by the paramedics is I was lying on the floor unconscious.”
“Tyler took my phone. He knows the pin code, he’s very clever with technology.”
