Little Alexander meets his lifesavers

GLENREAGH toddler Alexander Kenney and his family were reunited with the Nana Glen Community First Responders who helped saved his life.

Alexander made international headlines last September when the Advocate reported his miraculous story of the family dog alerting the boy's father to the dam where he nearly drowned.

The Kenny family thanked Alexander's First Responders Alison Palmer, Karra Daley and Christine Tiley at the reunion last weekend.

For Alexander's mum, Lisa Brockbank said it was lovely to put a face to the names of the people who saved her son's life.

"It made me realise how close we came (to losing him) and made me so thankful this outcome happened," she said.

After meeting the now healthy and happy toddler, Ms Palmer said the day reinforced the important role of the Nana Glen CFRs.

"It reinforces why you do it. You can't get a better outcome, I know statistically that the outcome was phenomenal. To have been part of what he went through is an amazing thing."
