Caine, who attends the RSA Academy CCF, Tipton, West Mids, was presented with his award at Westminster Palace in October.
Earlier this year, Caine came home from school one day to find his father Craig collapsed on the sofa. Realising he wasn't breathing, Caine immediately took control of the situation. He placed his father on the floor in the recovery position, called an ambulance and started CPR.
When the paramedics arrived, Caine stayed calm and helped to reassure his younger brother and sister.
Craig was taken to hospital and diagnosed with double pneumonia which led him to have a full respiratory failure and cardiac arrest.
Craig was told by the consultants that Caine's first aid skills, and cool, calm actions, had undoubtedly saved his life. If it wasn’t for Caine’s quick thinking, Craig might not have survived.
Caine has been a part of the RSA Academy CCF Army section for more than two years and had completed a CPR course just two weeks before his father fell ill. The CCF has undoubtedly given him the confidence and skills to do amazing things, including saving his dad’s life.
