Father with epilepsy hails daughter a 'hero' for saving his life for the second time
George Hill, 40, has praised his 12-year-old daughter Charli for coming to his rescue a second time after he had a seizure and collapsed unconscious at his home in Widnes.
Mr Hill had gone downstairs at 3 am on Monday morning to get a drink when he fell. Charli woke up when she heard the fall and woke up her mother, Michelle to get help.
Mr Hill, a former chef, told the Runcorn and Widnes World "there is no doubt she saved my life."
"She is so calm and sensible. I had landed on my face and dislocated my shoulder so I was stuck.
"With fluid on my lungs, I would have suffocated."
This was the second time Charli had come to her father's rescue. Five months ago, Mr Hill had a seizure in the bathroom and broke his cheekbone. "I was knocked out," he said. "Charli has a sixth sense. She got up and when she couldn't get in the door she woke her mum up.
"She is a little angel, a lifesaver. She is amazing."
Mr Hill has had severe epilepsy since he fractured his skull in an accident when he was 11. His health deteriorated further when he fell of a motorbike when he was 23, leaving him unable to work.
