Toddler Uses Cell Phone To Save Mom's Life

Could your toddler call for help if something happened to you?

This story kinds of shamed me. My kid is 2-years-old. Hell, she’s almost three and there is no way she would be able to use my cell to call for help.

But according to Jezebel.com, that’s exactly what happened when Larissa Taylor had a seizure and stopped breathing.

Somehow, her 2-year-old daughter Lia was able to call her grandmother and tell her what happened.

Bobbie Gonzalez couldn’t believe what she heard when she answered her phone.

“It was Lia and she said, ‘My mom fell down,’ I said, ‘Let me talk to your mom,’ and she said, ‘She won’t wake up.'” Gonzalez called 911 and went over to the house. Thing is, Lia had never been taught to use the phone.

Turns out, Larissa Taylor is diabetic although she wasn’t aware of that when she collapsed. Doctors say she could have died if she didn’t get to the hospital when she did. Could your toddler call for help if something happened to you?

Here’s the report including interviews with the family from KHOU in Houston. This little girl is adorable!
