Brave boy, 3, rode Paw Patrol truck down busy A-road to get help after dad's fit

Brave Stefan Snowden shows how he rode to the rescue on his Paw Patrol truck after his dad suffered a life-threatening seizure. The three-year-old let himself out of his home after an epileptic fit left Marc, 28, lying unconscious on the sofa. And like the hero pooches who run rescue services in hit cartoon Paw Patrol, he trundled his wagon a quarter of a mile down a busy A-road to get help.

The lad was at risk as stunned drivers beeped and swerved to avoid him. And after two women stepped in to help him, the tot told police: "Daddy was poorly." Former factory worker Marc said: "I suffer from seizures because of my epilepsy so it is life-threatening when I am on my own.

I'm so proud of Stefan."
