A young apprentice leapt to action on his lunch break when a man collapsed in a South Yorkshire sandwich shop.

Apprentice joiner Kieran Murphy, aged 20, had only completed his first aid training one month before the emergency at Subway on Market Street, Barnsley.

Lauren Stevenson, of timber frame company SticX, said: “One of the customers started to have a fit and collapsed.

“Everyone panicked, however Kieran jumped in to action, re-enacting the first aid training he had received in our office only a month beforehand.

“Kieran made everyone stand back and made the patient comfortable away from anything that could harm him whilst letting the fit carry out.

“He then put him in recovery position, talking to the patient until the ambulance got there.

“After that he casually just went back to the building site and carried on his working day.”

Kieran is a level three apprentice joiner, who was working on a building site on Heelis Street until last week.

The young lad, from Liverpool, was visited by the manager of the Market Street Subway, who thanked him for what he did.

Lauren said: “He just brushed it off but we are so proud of him for so quickly rushing to help another person while he was out on his dinner break.”
