Nathan Purvis-Hutchinson, a Learner from Military Preparation College South Shields recently made his family and Instructors very proud when he voluntarily carried out a hugely brave and courageous act.
In a message sent to the MPCT South Shields Facebook page from Mr Purvis-Hutchinson’s family member, it can be seen how he bravely attempted to save a man’s life;
A man flagged my mum’s car down on the A7 for assistance after finding another man whom had fallen off his bike. My mum stopped to help along with one other car while everyone else kept driving by. My son (Mr Purvis Hutchinson) and daughter hurried to help the man on the floor and began performing CPR while adults stood by watching, until another lady came to help and took it in turns with Nathan to continue CPR while my sister held the man’s head still and comforted him. Sadly we believe the man may have died during CPR despite their best efforts. I am so proud to have family that stopped and helped a man in need when no one else would and especially of Nathan who I believe tackled this situation calmly and sensibly, I believe this is due to training he has received whilst at your college. Both your establishment and Nathan need the recognition you both deserve to prepare young people to face situations such as this.
Well done Mr Purvis-Hutchinson, your family are clearly very proud and so is everyone at MPCT.
