Help family find nurse who saved this boy's life; HUNT IS ON FOR HERO NURSE WHO STOPPED TO HELP 3-YROLD BOY SUFFERING A FIT IN A CAR details.

Byline: DAVID POWELL Daily Post Reporter

A HERO nurse stopped to help a boy suffering a fit - and his family have urged her to get in touch.

Brave Osian Wyn Lewis, three, had fallen ill in a car returning from a day trip.

Remarkably, the woman said she is a paediatric nurse at Alder Hey children's hospital on Merseyside.

Mum Catrin Williams, 22, said: "We want to say thank you to her."

The drama happened after the lad had played happily with his family on Pwllheli beach on Saturday at about 3.30pm.

He fell ill on the way home from Pwllheli to Clynnog in the car with his dad Mark, grandmother Vanessa and great grandmother Greta Millen. Osian's mum Catrin Williams was in another car.

Greta, 68, said: "I was in the back of the car with Osian. Osian's eyes became 'quite starey'. Mark (the front passenger) called his name but he didn't respond".

The anxious family pulled over on the A499 near Y Ffor and rested Osian on the verge covered in a blanket.

Greta said the nurse's car drove past but came back.

The nurse, who had been with her own family on holiday, tended to the boy till more help arrived.

Greta, who works in a Bethesda garage, said: "She was such a lovely lady.

"She knelt down in the rain and it was chilly and damp."

She believes police officers in an unmarked car also stopped and called for an ambulance.

Greta said paramedics took the lad to the A&E department of Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor. He had an ear and throat infection which brought on the fit, she said. He is recovering well at home on antibiotics.

Later, Catrin's mum Vanessa - who was not in the same car - appealed for the hero lady to get in touch. She said: "She was a paediatric nurse from Alder Hey on holiday in North Wales.

"But my mum (Greta) and daughter (Catrin) never got to thank her before she left."

She thanked paramedics and police officers too.
