A BROTHER and sister aged just four and six are being hailed as life-savers after their mother slumped unconscious and risked falling into a diabetic coma.

Trina Hinton started to ‘wobble’ before falling to the floor at her home in Alfrick when her blood sugar levels plummeted.

The single mum – who has type one diabetes – says she is “totally in awe” of her children, Libby, six, and Archie, four, and fears she would have died without their help.

The bright youngsters rang their grandad and 999, covered their mum with towels to keep her warm and brought her a sugary drink.

Mrs Hinton, aged 43, fell to the floor around 7.30pm on Thursday and was out cold for about two hours.

She said: “Libby said I started to wobble and then fell to the floor.

“Then apparently she rang my dad and was really calm, and said, ‘you need to get help, Mummy’s died’.

“While she was waiting for grandad she also rang 999.

“I can’t believe what they did.

“They had also wrapped towels around and got me some Lucozade.

“When I was on the way to hospital the paramedics said they were stunned by what they had done.

“One of the paramedics said he had been to lots of cases where a person was the only adult and they had died as they’d fallen into a coma.”

Mrs Hinton, of Clay Green, Alfrick, said she had tried to teach both of the kids - who are pupils at Broadheath Primary School - how to react in an emergency.

However, she could not believe how well the pair responded.

They even took to tidying their house while their mum was being cared for by paramedics.

She was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital and left in the early hours of Friday morning.

“I’d always said to them if anything happened to ring 999 or nanny and grandad - and they did,” Mrs Hinton, who works in Worcester, said.

“Apparently Archie was holding my hand when I came around.

“They were both totally calm - I’m totally in awe of them.

“About two years ago I taught Libby to know about the phone because of my condition.

“I just thought it was worth doing it but it’s amazing that she had taken in.

“Nobody can really believe what they’ve done, but they have both just taken it in their strides.

“I think I’m probably going to be thinking about this for the rest of my life.

“The paramedics were amazing as well.”

The two children were given special awards at an assembly at Broadheath Primary School on Friday.

Teacher Kirsty Hunter-Rice said: “As a school we feel extremely proud of Libby and Archie.

“They stayed calm in a very difficult situation.

"The word courageous only just begins to describe their actions."
