The security team were contacted by a member of the public who was bringing her poorly baby into Paediatric Emergency Department. She had locked her car keys in her boot and her baby was asleep on the back seat of the car at Sunderland royal Hospital.
Alan Makin and Mark Turner very quickly went to help the lady who was very upset and concerned about her baby. They carefully broke the window of the car and using a grabber retrieved the keys from the boot, whilst reassuring and comforting the lady. They opened the door and freed the baby from the car.
Mark and Alan went that extra mile in an emergency situation. They remained calm and ensured the baby came to no harm. They even boarded up the ladies car window for her whilst she was in Paediatrics Emergency Department.
