A QUICK thinking six-year-old has been commended for saving her mum’s life.

Daisy was in her own room when she sensed her mum, Nicola Earp, 48, was suffering a hyperglycaemic episode (diabetic attack).

She immediately found a phone and dialled 999.

Calmly she described her mum’s symptoms to North Wales Police call taker Ray Lever and gave her address in order for him to ensure officers were despatched as quickly as possible.

She remained on the line and continued to update the call handler on her unconscious mum’s condition.

She then opened the front door to allow the two officers in to the house, located in Kinmel Bay.

A spokesperson for North Wales Police said: "She explained that her father [Jeff Walker] was out working but could be called on her mum’s phone.

"As one officer went to assist with the patient, Daisy led the other officer to the cupboard where the medication is kept. It was administered and within 30 minutes the patient had completely come around and was back to normal, hence she did not require the ambulance or hospital treatment."

Daisy is presented with a certificate of bravery

In recognition of Daisy’s bravery, for staying calm in a difficult situation and for calling 999 for medical help, she has been presented at a special meeting in the North Wales Police Control Room with a certificate of bravery signed by the Chief Constable Carl Foulkes.

Chief Superintendent Neill Anderson said: “I am pleased to be able to support and thank Daisy for her brave actions in a very difficult situation. She is an inspiration to other young people.”

Daisy was joined by her mum, dad and her brother Alfie at Crud y Dderwen Joint Control Centre. There, they met up with Ray and Daisy was allowed to pass a message of thanks over the radio to everyone who helped her and her mum.

The Ysgol Dewi Sant pupil was also given the chance to sit in a police car and have her photograph taken with one of the police officers.

Thanks to PACT and a kind donation from Theatr Clwyd in Mold, Daisy was also presented with a family ticket to watch this year’s pantomime ‘Jack and the Beanstalk.’

Communications operator Ray said: “I just happened to be the one who answered the 999 call. It was one of those calls you dread taking because you know it is going to be stressful for the caller and difficult to get the information needed to safeguard all parties but Daisy made it so easy for me.

“Despite the mobile connection being terrible, she listened and did everything I said. She checked her mum’s breathing, kept trying to wake her up and stayed calm.

“She was my eyes and ears, so as she checked the vital signs I was able to risk assess her mum’s condition while we waited for the officers to arrive.”

As the family listened to the audio of the call, Nicola said: “I did not know what was going on until I woke up, but I am incredibly proud of Daisy. I didn’t realise that she actually saved my life.”

Jeff added: "Daisy has always helped her mum, we have always included both her and Alfie so they know the signs to look for and they were taught their address and how to dial 999 from an early age, so it comes naturally to them, but we did not realise quite how much she had picked up."
