Mum's worst nightmare

As Bronwyn Tuckwell ran down her street, nine months pregnant and carrying her son’s limp body, she screamed for help – but no-one came to her aid.

It’s any mother’s worst nightmare, and for Mrs Tuckwell it’s an experience she will sadly never forget.

It wasn’t until the 21-year-old mum had laid down her son, who had suffered a seizure and wasn’t breathing, on the lawn outside her home to call for help that a young man noticed her and turned his car around.
