A 15-YEAR-OLD girl from Dunfermline saved her grandad’s life after he suffered a stroke.

Morgan Millar woke up before school on Tuesday last week to discover he was unresponsive, unable to talk and his face was drooped on one side.

She called for an ambulance at around 7.30am and did her best to keep Alexander, 64, upright as paramedics made their way to the residential home at Whitelaw Court.

“I realised something was wrong and I was scared I was going to lose my grandad,” she told the Press.

“I stay there at weekends to help him but when I woke up to make us tea and toast I didn’t get any response from him.

“Half of his face was sideways and he wasn’t able to speak to me.

“I tried to help him up but he flopped back down on the bed.

“I pulled the yellow cord that’s in all the rooms to get help and called for an ambulance.”

She kept talking to him while help was on the way and signed him in when they got to Victoria Hospital by ambulance.

The St Columba’s High pupil added: “If I wasn’t there, he would’ve died.

“I’m very close to him and I was upset that I was going to lose him.”

Morgan’s mum, Corinne, praised her daughter’s actions.

“I’m very proud of her,” she said.

“The doctors and nurses all said she was absolutely amazing.”

Corinne was able to provide an update on Alexander, who remains in hospital.

She said: “He is not doing great. He has lost all control of his body and can’t swallow or speak. He also has pneumonia so he’s fighting that with antibiotics.

"Doctors said that he is lucky to have made it. If Morgan hadn’t found him he would have died within a few hours.”
