Ben Housson was just two years old when he was involved in a freak accident that very nearly killed him.  While at a restaurant in France, a ship's wheel - weighing 220lb - fell on his head and crushed his skull. Doctors said he had almost no chance of survival.

Pensioners Janet McMahon and Cameron Sharp dragged a suicidal woman to safety with just seconds to spare after she lay across the path of an express train.

 

After hearing the screams of a woman being set upon by a car-jacker, Daniel Allen knew he had to act.  Not only did he chase the attacker and help capture him - he did so after being stabbed twice in the leg.

Bob created a landmine disposal system to stop any more innocents dying in accidents.
