Special commendations were given to three outstanding individuals:
Firefighter Nathan Cane was off duty in Euston Station when he noticed a man had collapsed. He began CPR and called for a defibrillator. As two British Transport Police officers ran to get one he carried on giving CPR and using the defibrillator Nathan brought the man back to life. The man was John Newman, uncle of Channel 4 News broadcaster Cathy Newman. He made a full recovery. Nathan and John had an emotional reunion at the awards ceremony.
Ex-serviceman Tony Davis and Tobias Ellwood MP both put themselves at risk to save the life of another during the Westminster Terror Attack. Tony jumped a fence to reach PC Keith Palmer and began performing CPR before Tobias Ellwood MP took over. Sadly, Keith Palmer’s life could not be saved but both men showed incredible bravery.
All three received their special commendation for bravery and were celebrated among nine other winners on the night, hosted by TV presenter and best-selling author, Katie Piper.
I feel very privileged to host the Everyday Heroes Awards, I know from personal experience how important it can be to know what to do in a first aid emergency and act quickly. - Katie Piper
