Over the years, I have heard stories such as this where a young child actually saves their parent's life by calling 911 for help in an emergency. These kids are extraordinary and uncommon. It makes you wonder how many young children are on the other side of the spectrum and are unable to call 911 in an emergency because they simply do not know how to. Or, how many people (the elderly especially) are so full of adrenaline or pain that they cannot manage dialing an emergency number? Are there many of these people?
It is a comfort for people to know that family members can call for emergency help if needed by simply pushing a button next to a wallet-sized photograph. I will continue to love seeing heroic acts done by the uncommon youngster on behalf of their family, but wouldn't it be great if all children could have the ability to call for help in an emergency?
