City teens among those honoured at Tryangle awards

Worcester Editorial 24th Apr, 2019   0

A QUICK-THINKING Worcester teenager who saved the life of a city pensioner has been honoured for his efforts at a major county award ceremony which celebrates the efforts and achievements of young people.

Mohammed Shazaib was rewarded for his bravery at the 2019 Tryangle Awards, Worcestershire’s premier annual awards which were held at Worcester Bosch during an inspirational evening.

As he was walking to school he heard a cry for help from a neighbour’s front garden. Mohammed, who is just 13 years old, recognised the lady and called his family to help him.

The lady had been ignored by several other passers-by and the quick response of Mohammed helped save her life by getting the paramedics to attend and take her to hospital.

Judges praised Mohammed ‘s actions as ‘a selfless example of putting others before himself’.

Brave city teenager Liliana Alves was also honoured for her bravery at the ceremony which saw more than 80 people attend to see the 17 most outstanding young people in Worcestershire presented with an exclusive ‘Tryangle Award trophy’ and certificate.

The 14-year-old was knocked over by a bus in Worcester city and suffered serious internal injuries. Despite the accident she has maintained her strong will to overcome the difficulties she faced during her recovery and has returned to school on a part-time basis to continue her studies.

Local organisations Oakland International, Mazak, Fortis Living, Harrison Clark Rickerbys, Baxter Williams and rhe Margaret Westwood Memorial Charity sponsored the awards in a variety of categories.

Volunteers from the West Mercia Police Cadets helped co-ordinate the evening and we are very grateful for their help.

“Truly some inspiring stories from the young people. Well done on a successful event,” said Luke Attwell from award sponsor Oakland International.

David Hunt, head of manufacturing operations and engineering at Worcester Bosch said: “Supporting the Tryangle Awards and hearing the details behind real life journeys of the recipients was truly inspirational.

“It was pleasure to meet young people striving to make a positive impact. They are a credit to themselves, their support networks and the local community.”
