A HERO son with disabilities “saved his mother’s life” after she fell into a diabetic coma.

Liam McCormick, who has autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and severe anxiety, called police when he found mum Belinda Felton lying on the living room floor unconscious on January 6.

Thanks to quick-thinking Liam, police were able to send an ambulance to their home in Sissinghurst Close, Weston.

The 23-year-old is an avid fan of TV show Casualty and Belinda, 55, believes his love of the programme helped him save her life.

“Liam watches Casualty and is obsessed with it so I think he’s learned what to do in an emergency through that,” she said.

“The last thing I remember is having my friends over on Friday night.The next thing I know I am in intensive care with my brother and two sons by my side.

“Liam found me on the floor and wasn’t able to wake me, so he called the police and said to them ‘I’ve lost my dad, lost my nan and now I’m going to lose my mum’.”

She added: “Apparently, I went into a diabetic shock and I coughed up blood and everything.

Belinda said the last year has been tough for her, Liam and his brother James, 30.

Her mother died in November after she had cared for her for the last 13 months.

As well as this, her two sons – who were clients of Kentish Road respite centre before it was closed by Southampton City Council in December – have moved to different places to cater for their needs.

Liam now attends Eastleigh College, where he is completing a life skills course.

Belinda spent 11 days in intensive care but is now at home.

Belinda said: “For Liam to do something like this is incredible for him because he is quite shy and has real anxiety in situations like this.

“I literally died and they bought me back to life and it was all down to Liam. He saved my life and is a hero.”

She added: “I also want to find out who the ambulances drivers were because without them I wouldn’t be here.

“It’s all a blank but I thankfully Liam saved me.”
