THESE quick-witted kids are heroes after they got help for their mum, who had fallen unconscious.

Millie Jones, 4, said she thought her mother, Rebecca Jones, was dead when she found her lying on the bathroom floor at the family home in Grassmoor.

The terrified tot tried to shake her mother awake, before rushing to get her brother Bradley, 6.

“She asked Bradley to ring an ambulance, but he decided to ring his dad, who was at work and couldn’t answer” said Rebecca. Millie then ran across the road to get help from a neighbour, who managed to bring her round.

Rebecca, who is currently undergoing tests to find out the cause of her blackout, said her children could have saved her life.

“When I went to hospital, the paramedic told me I was very lucky and that people who are unconscious for a long time can slip into a coma,” she said.

The Grassmoor Primary School pupils, who live with their mum, dad Jason, and younger sister Libbie, 2, on Smithy Place, were showered with treats after their heroic display.

“I am really proud of them for what they have done,” said full-time mum, Rebecca.

“I don’t know how they knew what to do, but sometimes Libbie has fits and maybe they have picked up on what I have done.”

Millie, who starts primary school in September said she felt “sad” when she found her mum, but was pleased to get chocolates and a McDonald’s meal as her reward.

Computer game fan Bradley said he was scared and had tried to wake his mum by shaking her and rubbing her face, but was proud of himself and his sister.

Now Rebecca, who admits she sat and sobbed with pride after the incident, is considering entering her children into Derbyshire County Council’s Young Achiever awards.

“I just can’t explain how amazed I am that they knew what to do to help me” she said.
