A CHETTISHAM youngster is up for a top national award for her quick-thinking at a three-vehicle road accident.
Army cadet Jodi Page, 14, was with a group of fellow cadets returning home from a first aid competition in Leicestershire last year when they witnessed the crash on the A47.
While other cadets controlled traffic, Jodi's attention was drawn to a female casualty in a nearby car.
Although the space inside was extremely limited, Jodi managed to support the woman's head to prevent further injury and comforted her while they waited for paramedics.
