Wembley firefighters to be awarded for saving the lives of two people in 30 minutes
The crew carried out first aid on 13-year-old girl and male heart attack victim in Wembley High Road
Four firefighters will be awarded for saving the lives of two people who collapsed in Wembley High Road within 30 minutes of each other.
The crew, who are based at Wembley Fire station in Harrow Road, Wembley, were returning from a routine fire safety inspection when they noticed a huge crowd gathering around an unconscious 13-year-old girl.
Firefighters Victor E-Muhammad, Roy Maynard, Darren Bennett and crew manager Dan Green rushed to the scene where they provided the girl with fluids and first aid until paramedics arrived.
On their way back to their fire station they noticed another ambulance crew working on a man suffering from a suspected heart attack and helped paramedics until the man’s heartbeat returned.
