Cheshire mum helps man having a seizure at Creamfields

Rachael King, who has three children will epilepsy, stepped in to help.

A Cheshire mum is urging more people to learn about how to deal with seizures, after she helped a man at Creamfields. 

Rachel King was attending the festival with her husband, when they spotted somebody having a seizure whilst entering.

She says: "There must have been around ten people around him and nobody was aware of what to do, they were trying to stick fingers in his mouth.

"I knew instantly then, that I had to try and keep calm and just take over the situation the best I could". 

Rachel has three children with epilepsy, and so knew what steps to take. 

She's created a video that highlights what to do if someone has a seizure:

I have made a video with a few facts about Epilepsy and what to do if you see someone having a seizure. Please share to...

Rachel adds: "You never know when you're going to be faced with having to help somebody, if we can make more people aware of what to do, it can hopefully help someone during a seizure, but also prevent them from causing further injury, and potentially you could go on to save somebodies life."
