A friend of mine has just come back from a job as a solo responder.
A small child was choking on a bone, he managed to clear the child's airway so the child didn't choke to death.
I let him know that I was impressed with the way that he saved the child's life, without him being there the child would have died.
“You've worked for your paypacket today”, I told him.
He didn't seem too impressed with me noticing this, saying that, “It was nothing”.
So – consider this 'being mentioned in Dispatches'.
