‘It got so bad we had to call triple zero.’ ? Tommy told 3AW Mornings.

Tommy relied on the first aid training he received at school.

His mum Renae says without a doubt Tommy saved her life.

‘He does a lot of things that are beyond his years, and for that I’m proud of him.’

Renae says she looks forward to where he progresses in life.
