A HALL Green army cadet has been nominated for a top police award for saving a stabbed man’s life.
Nasim Ahmed was volunteering at a charity dinner in Digbeth when he was alerted to an attack in the car park.
The victim had been stabbed after confronting a car thief.
The 16-year-old jumped into action, grabbed a medical kit and rushed to the victim’s side.
Nasim worked at speed to slow down the bleeding until the ambulance arrived.
The victim was taken to hospital where he made a full recovery.
It’s for this act of courage, the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson has nominated Nasim for Outstanding Young Citizen at the upcoming awards ceremony on July 11.
Nasim said: “I am deeply honoured with knowing that my actions ensured that the victim survived such a horrific incident.
“I am truly grateful and honoured for being nominated for this award, and I am deeply moved by the Police and Crime Commissioner’s nomination.”
The Solihull College student’s bravery and compassion was recognised by the Warwickshire and West Midlands Army Cadet force, and was awarded the Commandants Commendation 2018.
Mr Jamieson, said: “Nasim’s actions showed bravery beyond his years.
“His courage and first aid skills were crucial in saving a man’s life. Without Nasim’s intervention, the story may have been very different.
“Nasim is a great role model for other young people and is an example to us all. I am delighted that he has been nominated for this award.”
