What a fantastic effort by young Shaun Ramsay, aged 9, who called an ambulance for his mum after she had a seizure.

Anne Ramsay, of Elderslie, said she is proud of her quick thinking son, who has Trisomy 8 mosaicism, a rare condition. Symptoms vary, but can include speech or learning delays.

She said: “He managed to give our address and tell them I was on the floor, when the ambulance arrived he let them in the house – it’s incredible what we achieved.

“Although he must have been terrified he got help for me and managed to speak to the ambulance dispatcher words can’t describe how proud I am. Can I also commend the team that came to my house they helped calm him down and took care of me.”

Anne said Shaun wants to be a paramedic when he grows up – or an astronaut. Good luck Shaun in either career. What a remarkable effort to help your mum.

The call was taken by Fiona Cruickshanks and Kirsty Craig, of Paisley Station, also attended.
