In his hometown, the adolescent is now regarded as a hero. Another person could have passed by, but Liam noticed something unusual that saved the 89-year-old woman’s life. Liam Epps, from the English city of Kent, has been delivering newspapers on his bicycle in his spare time for several years.
A few weeks ago, a 15-year-old boy decided to do all of his homework before school. He was driving along the usual route, scattering parcels, when he noticed a lot of accumulated press on the porch of the house where the 89-year-old old woman lived. Liam went to school after finishing work, but he couldn’t stop thinking about what he had seen.
After class, he told his mother about everything, and together with her, he went to check on the resident of the house. Katie, Liam’s mother, knocked on the window, but no one answered. She tried again and again until she finally heard a weak voice.
The elderly lady was unable to get up and was lying on the floor. She was pleading for assistance. The adolescent immediately called for help. Katie and her neighbors broke down the back door and entered the house. The woman was curled up in the corner. She appeared to have fallen down the stairs.
The old lady had a cut on her leg, but she couldn’t get up because of the severe pain in her back. The grandmother screamed for help for several days on the floor, but no one heard her.Liam, who has been delivering the press every day since 2019, was familiar with the house and its owner. He hadn’t spoken to her since Christmas.
The sweet old lady wished him a happy holiday and gave him money as a gift.The victim was taken to the hospital by paramedics, where she was discovered to be confused and severely dehydrated. The woman was discovered in record time, which doctors believe could have had disastrous consequences.
The elderly lady is now on the mend and will be able to return home soon. Liam is relieved that he paid attention to a stack of newspapers and was able to assist an elderly woman in time, despite the fact that he did not immediately know what to do in such an unusual situation for him.
And his mother says she never expected anything less from her son, who grew up to be a good and kind young man. The teenager was also thanked by paramedics, who said Liam’s intervention saved the grandmother’s life. The boy quickly became a celebrity among his peers, receiving numerous encouraging messages from peers who were moved by his performance.
Although the owner of the house gave permission to break into the doors, the residents of the district felt it was necessary to organize a fundraiser for the house’s repair. At the moment, they have collected approximately 150 pounds. Katie intends to use the funds to clean the carpets and purchase some potted flowers to decorate the rooms for the return of the hostess.
