5-year-old saves mom by calling 911

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK, NY (WFLA) - Little Jillian Given from New York is her mother's hero after saving her life when the woman went into diabetic shock, WNBC reported.

When her mom passed out from the shock, she knew how to dial 911 and what to tell the operator.

"Most people would probably freak out. She was four or five and she did a great job," said James Hudson, the emergency operator who took her call. "She knew exactly what to say."

Jillian told the operator if her mom was breathing and where they lived, that's why paramedics were able to get to Elizabeth Given and help her just in time.

"They fixed her and she woke up when they fixed her," Jillian told WNBC.

Given knows she is lucky to have a daughter like this. She says every parent should teach their children how to call 911.

"Because they get it, they can do it," she said about kids.
