A six year-old from Sevenoaks has been to say thank you to the paramedics who treated her after she was injured falling off a trampoline.
Ronni Chase hit her head after doing a somersault in her garden last month.
Kevin Chilvers and Simon Matthews managed to keep her calm while they waited for the air ambulance to arrive, Simon even sung Hannah Montana songs to keep her entertained.
Her mum, Nicky Osborne said: "It was terrifying; I was in the garden talking to my mum, who lives next door, when Ronni went flying through the netting. I went running to her but my mum shouted to me not to move her and she called for an ambulance."
Ronni's grandmother supported her head until the paramedics arrived.
Kevin said: "They did exactly the right thing by not moving her. Her injuries could have been considerably worse.
"Due to the face that she was complaining of neck pain and has a head injury, we called for the assistance of the air ambulance."
The paramedics stayed until the air ambulance got there.
Nicky said: "They were fantastic keeping the situation calm. Simon was singing Hannah Montana songs with Ronno until the air ambulance arrive."
The onboard doctor was able to treat the head and neck injuries at the scene.
