Commendation for off-duty nurse who saved man's life in south Birmingham after night shift

AN OFF-DUTY nurse who saved the life of a man when he collapsed in south Birmingham has received an award.

Eiren Carbery was driving home along the Bristol Road South around 9am on June 24 last year after completing a night shift.

Seeing a man had collapsed she immediately stopped to help and commenced CPR and mouth to mouth resuscitation – a particularly selfless act given the Covid pandemic and potential repercussions.

A police constable, on her way to work, also stopped and helped give CPR while Eiren managed to unblock the man’s airway.

When paramedics arrived they managed to get a pulse and there is no doubt that Eiren’s actions helped prevent a time delay that could have been fatal.

Eiren was awarded a Chief Constable’s Good Citizens Award and a Royal Humane Society Award at a special presentation on Thursday.
