A YOUNG Lake Cooroibah boy is being hailed a hero after his quick-thinking actions helped to save his nana's life.

And tomorrow, the Queensland Ambulance Service will recognise his efforts with a special award to be presented at his school.

Jai Timms will never forget June 11.

He found his nana, Marg Clark, lying motionless and struggling to breathe on the floor of her caravan.

The eight-year-old had stopped by Mrs Clark's caravan, a few metres away from his home, as he and his mum Rebekah were about to go out.

"Jai was standing behind me when we opened the caravan door and we could only see her legs," Ms Timms said.

"His jaw dropped, but I turned to him and said, 'You know what to do Jai' and he ran up to the house and called triple-zero.

"He was pretty scared.

"He came back with the phone shaking in his hand, but he had clearly given our address and told them his nan needed an ambulance."

Ms Timms stayed on the phone and helped her mum. Jai was asked to wait at the end of the driveway and wave so officers could easily find the address.

He carried out his duties with a level head and a maturity well beyond his years.

Eager to ensure his nana received the best care, Jai continued to help paramedics.

He moved items out of their way and got a blanket for Mrs Clark when she was put on to the stretcher.

Mrs Clark was diagnosed with a subdural brain haemorrhage and was airlifted to the Royal Brisbane Women's Hospital, where she underwent four-and-a-half hours of surgery to correct a shifting of the brain.

After two weeks in intensive care and another six weeks in the Nambour General Hospital stroke unit, she has now been moved to the Glenbrook Rehabilitation Centre for a 12-week program.

Jai recounted his harrowing experience to awestruck Year 3 classmates at Noosaville State School when he returned from school holidays.

He will be presented with an Assistant Commissioner's Certificate by QAS Noosa officer in charge Annette Morris during school assembly tomorrow.

Ms Timms said she had instilled the importance of how to dial Triple 0 and give clear, concise information in both of her boys since they were very young.

"I am so proud of what he has done," she said.

"He is our little hero."

While there is still a long road to recovery ahead for his nana, Jai said he was looking forward to having her back at home.

He said he was keen to continue their daily ritual of sharing a chocolate milk before he goes off to school.
