What This 5-Year-Old Did To Save Her Mom From An Epileptic Seizure Is So Heroic

Such a brave little girl.

On January 24, 2012, at 11:01am Britain's emergency services received a call from a 5-year-old girl Elleemae.


Apparently, Elleemae's mother Loretta had an epileptic seizure and collapsed.

After not being able to wake her mom up, Elleemae did something not every 5-year-old would think to do. She dialed an emergency number to get help.

According to a survey by Mumsnet, UK's largest network for parents, a whopping 37 percent of respondents didn't teach their kids what to do in case of an emergency.

This powerful PSA shows how a simple conversation with your child can end up saving your life. It features an actual recorded conversation between a 999 (Britain's equivalent of 911) operator and a 5-year-old toddler.

The campaign also features useful information for parents on how to easily teach children how to act in a stressful situation like this. If you have kids, have this conversation with them today. 

After all, as Momsnet puts it, "it could be a matter of life and death. Don't leave it to chance."
