Emma Dooley noticed something was wrong as soon as Mr Jevons opened the door.
"He was shaking and seemed unsteady on his feet so we took him into the lounge and sat him down," said Emma.

Moments later, Mr Jevons, 54, collapsed and had an epileptic fit.

His wife was upstairs and heard their shouts for help.

Emma dialled 999, whilst making sure Mr Jevons was in the recovery position.

Paramedics advised what to do over the phone as they waited for the ambulance to arrive at the house in Worsley, Salford. “It only took 10 minutes or so for the ambulance to come but it felt much longer," said Mrs Jevons. "I was just so glad Emma was there with us." Paramedics treated Mr Jevons at home and advised him to rest.

Emma, a Tenant Liaison Officer, called a few days later to check all was well.

"We really appreciated that," said Mrs Jevons, 52, who has been married for 18 years.

Emma says she is now keen to go on a first aid training course to feel more prepared in case something like this happens again.
