Adorable four-year-old hero saves dad’s life   

A brave four-year-old from Church Gresley in Derbyshire who helped to save her dad’s life has been presented with a bravery award by the ambulance team who attended him.   

Peri-Elouise ran to her grandparents’ house and alerted them to call 999 after she found her dad collapsed on the floor.

Rob Simpkins, 29, had been looking after his daughter on 22 July when he collapsed at his family home due to a hypoglycaemic episode.

With his wife working away and only Peri in the house, Rob was in danger of becoming seriously ill but thanks to his daughters quick thinking actions, he received the medical attention he urgently needed.
