At just 18 years old, Megan Larmour took out a top international Royal Life Saving Award after having to perform CPR on two separate occasions.

A man had collapsed in a carpark, and Megan rushed over to begin compressions.
When a defibrillator arrived, Megan attached the device and shocked the man twice, restarting his heart.
The man unfortunately passed away in hospital, but his family was able to say goodbye and his organs were donated.
90-year-old Ann Cornish had never danced in public before her debut performance outside of the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre in 2021.
