Hero cadet Oliver Seymour helped save man’s life
A Cadet who managed to save a man’s life has been recognised for his courage.
Oliver Seymour, from Colchester, was cycling through town when he came across a man laying in the street.
By performing CPR, paramedics said the 16-year-old had saved the man’s life.
After his brave act, he was given the Highly Commended Citizen Award at the Colchester Youth Awards.
He said: “It was a couple of months ago, I was cycling on my own in Osborne Street.
“There was someone laying in between the crossings, I thought they had fallen but they just wouldn’t move.
Oliver has just left St Helena School, and it was his former Head of Year who nominated him for the award.
