Quick-thinking boy, 9, saved gran from drowning in bath after learning life-saving skills from YouTube – The Sun

A BOY of nine saved his gran from drowning in the bath after learning life-saving skills by chance from YouTube.

Kian Aliffe held Angela Jones’ head back, turned off the tap and pulled the plug after finding her floating in the water.

He rang 999, then mum Hailey, and waited for an ambulance. Angela, 51, who suffered a seizure, is now fully recovered.

Kian, who had seen a clip of a girl saved from drowning after having a fit in a swimming pool, said: "I remember seeing them pull the girl out of the water so I knew I had to try and lean her head back and to unplug the water so she wouldn't go under.

"I did panic but knew I needed to help so tried to find someone to help and phone the ambulance with me."

Kian's mum said: “As soon as I got there I knew something was wrong when I saw Kian sitting outside the house. Then he told me he was waiting for an ambulance.

"There is no doubt in my mind, that Kian saved my mum's life and if he wasn't there or didn't know what to do, I dread to think what would have happened.

"I'm always telling him 'get off the internet' but he said that he only knew what to do after seeing a video online."
