Heroic 5-Year-Old Thinks 911 Dispatcher Is Her Daddy (VIDEO)
Thanks to a catchy song played for kids at school during their visits with fire and police officials, one little girl knew just what to do when her mom suddenly started choking on a tortilla chip. After dialing 911 like the song suggests, 5-year-old Chloe Olson reported her mother’s breathing troubles to a dispatcher who she adorablythought was her daddy!
“Daddy, mommy’s choking,” Chloe says in the recording of the 911 call. The dispatcher doesn’t take time to question the girl, but instead rolls with it, asking her to leave the door open so people can help her mommy when they get there. The little girl did what she’s told and then ended the conversation by saying, “Love you, bye.” She then turned to her mom and told her that daddy was on his way.
Not only is this the sweetest thing to hit our computer screens this morning, but we’re impressed that such a young child would know just what to do in the case of an emergency. Chloe’s mom could be heard gasping for breath and coughing in the background, but when the health officials arrived, she had managed to unblock her airway and did not need to go to the hospital.
