Thanks to good schools and good parenting, children these days are pretty smart.
They know when danger arises and can call for help when needed.
Five-year-old Savannah of Indiana ended up saving her dad’s life because she knew how to call 911 when her dad was having chest pains.
Not only did she remain calm but she was able to clearly communicate with the dispatchers.
She also gave them a good laugh.
What operator Jason Bonham asked the little girl what was wrong she was able to tell him exactly.
“Um… my dad can’t hardly breathe,” she told him.
Bonham quickly made sure to dispatch an ambulance to their home.
“OK… you need to come reaalll fast!” she told him.
He reassured her that they were on the way. He then asked if her dad was still awake and she told him that he was.
Bonham then asked if their door was unlocked.
She had to ask her dad who said it wasn’t. She then followed Bonham’s instructions to unlock the door so that the emergency responders could enter their home.
In the meantime, she made sure to comfort her dad.
“Don’t worry Dad!” Savannah said remaining completely composed.
Savannah then answered all of Bonham’s additional questions.
“Can you ask him [her dad] if this has ever happened before?” he asked.
“No, so far so good,” she said. “He’s still awake.
“Hey, ask him if he has any chest pain,” Bonham said.
“Do you have any chest pain?” she asked her dad.
“Yes,” she told Bonham. “This is his first time.”
That’s when Savanah suddenly became concerned.
“Ok. We’re in our jammies! And I’m in a tank top, so… I’ll have to get dressed,” she told Bonham. “I don’t know what I’m gonna wear, but… he really needs oxygen, real fast. Yes, the door’s unlocked.”
Bonham tried to keep the focus on her dad.
“Is he still doing OK, Savannah?” he asked.
She told him that he was and that she was going to be in her room to go and get changed.
“Hey Savannah? I want you to stay there with your Daddy, ok?” Bonham said.
She agreed and then decided to tell him about another important family member.
“Ok. I got that. And… we have a dog….that’s really… um….. small,” she tell him.
She tells him that Lou their dog is friendly and sometimes barks.
” Lou, come on! [clicks at the dog] The ambulance is on the way- come on, Lou Lou! Come here!” Savannah says.
Savannah had Bonham in stitches. Thankfully, Savannah’s dad was OK. You can hear the hilarious 911 call in the video below.
