A five year old Cornish lad is being hailed a hero - after his pregnant mum collapsed on the stairs.

Dylan leapt into action in Penryn when Aimee Clarke's blood pressure plummeted and she passed out.

He dialled 999, remembered their address and then put on his shoes and went to find help at the next door takeaway.

Aimee said: "He's my little hero. Just one in a million really. At the age of five to know what to do - he did it. He managed to get outside and go to the Indian and ask them for help.

"I don't know all the ins and outs but I passed out because of low blood pressure and my little hero came to the rescue."

Police and paramedics were scrambled to the flat and Aimee was taken into hospital for a couple of days.

She is now back home and both she and the baby are fit and healthy again.

Dylan told Pirate FM: "I had to call 9999999 and say, 'My mum has fallen down the stairs.'

"She said, 'I'm proud of you.'"

She is praising emergency crews who came to her aid and looked after Dylan, playing with his toys while she was checked over.
