Two women are being hailed heroes for battling to save a teenager after a stabbing in Saltash.

The nineteen year old is being treated in Derriford.

It was around 2pm on Tuesday afternoon the locals spotted the lad stagger across Alamein Road before collapsing.

They rushed to his aid - trying to stem the blood.

One has told how he lost consciousness four or five times as they tried to keep him talking before the air ambulance arrived.

One of the women, who did not want to be named, told the Plymouth Evening Herald: "There was several wounds to his side, one in the middle of his chest. The boy lives local. I think he was trying to make it home but collapsed in the street.

"She was holding in his intestines and I was holding down on his rib area. I could hear air bubbling out of his chest, through the holes.

"It’s not what you expect on a quite Tuesday afternoon.

“Both of us are qualified first aiders, so we knew what we had to do. God only knows what would happened to the boy if he had collapsed in the lane. There would have been no-one to find him.

“He lost consciousness four or five times, his eyes rolling back. We were trying to get him to speak to us, squeeze his hand, keep him awake.

“When the paramedics arrived I let them take over. But the woman stayed with him, talking to him the whole time.”

A 25 year old man is being questioned at Charles Cross police station in Plymouth.

A woman, also arrested yesterday, has been released and will not face any further action.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Police are now appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident or been in the area of Alamein Road this afternoon to please call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 ref log 387 270514."
