    More young super heroes are in training, who can repeat the life-saving actions of a seven-year-old Marlborough boy

    More young super heroes are in training, who can repeat the life-saving actions of a seven-year-old Marlborough boy


    Riley Drummond received a bravery award today at Waikawa Bay School in Picton.

    In April he dived down to rescue his five year-old sister Ella - who was motionless at the bottom of a public swimming pool.

    St John community education head Jacci Tatnell says they're blown away by his actions.

    She says children can lead from the front - and he deserved to receive the ASB Super Saver Bravery Award.

    St John is on target to have one million children go through a programme by 2023 to help them save lives.
