Five-year-old Telford boy saves mum after she has epileptic fit

A Telford mum says she is incredibly proud of her five-year-old boy after he called for help and possibly saved her life when she collapsed into an epileptic fit.


Young Jaxon Jones was alone with mum, Amanda Penn, 45, and his two-year-old sister Amara, at their home in Burnside, Brookside, when his mother started fitting on Thursday, June 1.

Jaxon, who goes to Windmill Primary School in Telford and has ADHD and Asperger's, was watching YouTube video's on his mum's phone at the time.

When he spotted his mum fitting the quick-thinking youngster went onto Facebook Messenger and called his step-mum Andrea.
