AN APPRENTICE heating engineer has been praised for keeping a cool head when he helped a Sheffield woman following a fall.

Liam Cowley, aged 18, of Hillsborough, who is in the second year of his apprenticeship, was working with Kier Sheffield staff fitting new radiators to homes in High Green when he heard Audrey Hodgson fall outside her home.

He ran to the aid of Mrs Hodgson, who had suffered a head wound and broken arm, after hearing her cry for help.

Liam has been praised by Mrs Hodgson for raising the alarm along with site first-aider Martyn Pass and staying with her until help arrived.

Mrs Hodsgon, now back home after making a full recovery, said: “I am extremely grateful to Liam and the Kier team for coming to my aid.

“I live alone so could have been in serious trouble had the chaps not been working in the area.”
