A hero paperboy came to the rescue of a man who suffered a fit and hit his head on the pavement yesterday - calling him an ambulance and even letting his work know he wouldn’t be in.
Dean Harvey, from Norwich Road, and his employer Katy Shewring would like to find the boy to thankhim for his kind-hearted actions.
Mr Harvey was on his way to work, walking along Bramford Road close to the Canine Grooming Parlour, at around 6.15am when he started feeling woozy.
He fell and struck his head on the pavement and the next thing he knew was being treated at Ipswich Hospital.
While Mr Harvey lay on the street, Mrs Shewring, branch manager at First Call Contract Services, started receiving text messages.
“I couldn’t work out what was going on at first,” she said.
“Then I found out it was a young boy who had found one of our workers on the floor.

“He stayed with him on the road, had called an ambulance for him and had contacted us too.
“Unfortunately he had left to finish his paper round by the time I got there.
“He is a remarkable kid, a lot of adults would have just walked along the road.#
“I think it is something he should be recognised for.”
AT hospital a CT scan revealed Mr Harvey had suffered an epileptic fit which had led to the fall.
“It is all a bit of a blur, he said.
“I only remember little bits of what happened.
“I would like to say thank you to him - he was great.
“Hopefully, I’ll be back to work tomorrow.”
