An ambulance was called, but while waiting for the ambulance to arrive:
Emily calmly rang her Dad, calmed her little brother, who was very upset, and sat with her Mum, using tissues to clean her face of blood and sat calming her down until the ambulance arrived, holding her little brother's hand all the time.
Emily said that 'she had a wobbly feeling in her tummy all the time', but she DID HER BEST. What more could anybody ask.
Here in Essex West we have a new Award called the County Achievement Award.
It was initially designed for Guides and Senior Section but in light Of this incident we have realised that there should not be a restriction on age.
Well done Emily and I have pleasure in presenting you with your County Achievement Award. This is the first time I have presented this Award and I am so proud to be presenting it to you.
We are all very proud of you.”
