A QUICK thinking school boy looked to the internet to get guidance on how to push back in his friend's dislocated knee, following an accident during break time.

Callum Hill looked on his horror as his friend, Kain Moore, dislocated his knee as he went to collect a football on the Upper Field during a break at Princes Risborough Secondary School.

Too far from the school to get help quickly Callum got his other friends, Cam Henderson and Charlie Rutland, to search on the internet how to put a knee back into place.

On the third attempt he managed to do it and they carried Kain back to the school reception, where an ambulance was called and he was taken to Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

Kain's mum, Alison, said: "I just think it was really brave. Callum, in particular, was so calm in the face of adversity. You don't expect that with 14-year-olds.

"We weren't sure whether that was the right thing to do initially but the ambulance people came and said, 'Yes, it had to be done. We would have to do it otherwise."

She said Kain has a weakness in hi knees, which is why is managed to dislocate so easily. He fell in and out of consciousness.

Callum said: "I was really surprised when it happened. I told my friend to Google how to put a dislocated knew back in place and then I just did it.

"It didn't work the first time because I didn't want to move him, but then I did move him a bit. The third time it worked."

Kain's knee is in a splint and he will need an MRI scan.
