The National Ambulance Service has presented a 'Courage & Bravery Award' to a child from Wexford town who saved a family member's life.
12-year-old Scoil Mhuire Wexford pupil Kelsey Doyle took immediate action on the morning of her confirmation by contacting emergency services and administering life-saving CPR.
Ahead of the paramedics' arrival Kelsey also did her best to make the family member feel as comfortable as possible.

Following the presentation, Community Engagement Officer Jonathan Lynch noted that the brave student acted "with significant speed and calmness to get help."
