No parent ever wants to consider the possibility of their kid being involved in a harmful scenario.
The one saving grace in this situation is the knowledge of how intelligent and resilient children can be, especially when faced with a crisis.
Children recall their training and leap into action, and one of the skills we teach them is how to cry for help if they need it.
One girl used this information to save her father’s life.
Savannah of Indiana, who was five years old at the time, ended up saving her father’s life since she understood how to phone 911 while her father was experiencing chest pains. She maintained her calm and effectively communicated.
She also made them laugh till they were in tears.
In fact, the 911 phone call that was recorded became viral as a result of the incident.
When operator Jason Bonham asked as to what was wrong with the little girl, she was able to provide him with specific information.
“Um… my dad can’t hardly breathe,” she told him.
Bonham made certain that an ambulance was sent to their home as soon as possible.
“OK… you need to come reaalll fast!” she told him.
He reassured her that they were on their way to her destination. Bonham then asked as to if her father was still awake, to which she responded that he was.
Bonham asked as to whether the door was unlocked.
She had to check with her father, who informed her that it wasn’t. Her next step was to follow Bonham’s directions and open the door so that the emergency responders could gain access to their house.
In the meanwhile, she made it a point to comfort her father.
“Don’t worry Dad!” Savannah maintained her composure throughout the conversation.
Savannah responded to each and every question that was given to her.
“Can you ask him if this has ever happened before?” he asked.
“No, so far so good,” she said. “He’s still awake.”
Despite the fact that it is just an audio recording, it seems as if the small girl is maintaining her composure despite the frightening scenario.
In the end, Savannah’s father was safe and sound, and the little girl was considered a hero. However, this endearing 911 recording has everyone in hysterical laughter.
In the video below, you can see Savannah bring some humor into a potentially dangerous scenario.
