#PositiveB31: Rubery 6 year old nominated for police bravery award


A Rubery youngster has been nominated for a West Midlands Police Outstanding Young Citizens Award for bravery.

EllieHarveySix year old Harvey has been nominated for the West Midlands Police award after calling for help when his heavily pregnant mum collapsed at home.

Student Ellie Gwilliams was home alone with Harvey and his 4 year old sister Kayah, when she collapsed on the kitchen floor at around 8 months pregnant.

When brave Harvey couldn’t rouse his mum, he stayed calm and contacted his dad and nanny to get help. Thanks to his quick thinking, by the time Ellie came to, HGV mechanic Chris and her mother were with her.

Ellie and Chris’s daughter Keiva was born 3 weeks early a fortnight later. Medics never managed to work out the cause of Ellie’s collapse.

Ellie told us: “I’m completely overwhelmed with the letter I’ve just recieved in the post, it’s completely bought me to tears. Absolutely shocked and unbelievably proud!”

Harvey and his family are looking forward to the awards ceremony July. Ellie said: “We will be taking Harvey to a ceremony in Town which will not only see him being recognised for the brave amazing little boy that he is to us, but to everybody else in the West Midlands.”

A huge well done, Harvey! You are a #B31Hero!
