Three 11-year-old children have been given Young First Aider of the Year awards for helping a five-year-old who was being choked by her school bag.
Emily Hussey, Jessica Bailey and Cade High stepped in when the girl, who had the straps of her bag around her neck, was struggling to breathe.
The girl had been too small and weak to pull her bag off herself.
The children used first aid skills they had learnt at school to check her breathing after removing the bag.
They were presented with their awards by St John Ambulance Jersey.
The charity said during the incident earlier this year the three older children took the weight of the girl's bag and shouted for help before undoing the straps.

They also comforted and reassured the girl who was upset and shocked.
St John Ambulance Deputy Commander Nigel Truscott said the pupils were a credit to the island.
"Their responsible attitude to the implementation of the skills they have learned as young first aiders demonstrates how important the ability to save another life is," he said.
The children had completed St John Ambulance's schools first aid programme, he added.
