7-Year-Old Who Called 999 When Mum Collapsed At Home Gets Special Visit From Police

'Noah did a great job in making sure his mum got the care she needed.'

A seven-year-old boy received a special visit from police officers after he called 999 when his mum collapsed on the floor at home.

Noah Gofur, who lives in Bromley, told dispatchers his mum was lying on the floor and unable to move. He managed to provide his name and address for emergency services to come to their assistance.

While waiting for them to arrive, Noah looked after his 15-month-old sister. His mum, Marjana, was semi-conscious on the floor when officers arrived. Marjana was treated by paramedics and taken to hospital – doctors believe she may have being suffering complications from an ear infection.

“Noah did a great job in making sure his mum got the care she needed and his fast thinking and bravery meant she is now recovering well,” said PC Matt Lockie, who arranged a visit to Noah’s home on 2 February to thank the youngster.


PC Lockie added: “We were delighted to be able to pop round to say well done and we know he has been recognised at school as well which is great. Hopefully his actions mean that if any other children are in the same situation, they will know what to do.”

Noah’s mum said she was so proud of her boy. “It must have been upsetting for him to see me unwell but he was amazing calling for help,” she said, adding that she taught him to learn their address incase he ever got lost, but never imagined him being so brave.

“I’m so grateful for everything the police have done for us, not only on the night but coming to see Noah and letting him play in the police cars too,” she said. “We really feel like this has been a huge boost to his confidence.”
