Suffolk Police thank members of the public for support during pregnant woman's health emergency in Sudbury
Police have taken to social media to thank two members of the public who assisted a pregnant woman during a health emergency in Sudbury on Thursday.
The incident occurred outside the Roys department store in Great Eastern Road.
A woman was taken ill, and was being attended to by officers.
A police source said two members of the public - a mother and a Year 11 students from Thomas Gainsborough School - intervened to help.
While awaiting an ambulance, the boy, who identified himself as a first aider, purchased a bottle of water for the woman.
He is also said to have secured items from Roys staff to help shade the woman and keep her comfortable.
In a message posted on Facebook, a spokesperson for Suffolk Police thanked the good Samaritans for their assistance.
They said: "You both were awesome and a credit to our community... and in the lads case a credit to your parents and school too."
