Mounties are commending a five-year-old girl on Vancouver Island for calling 9-11 and helping to save her mother's life.
West Shore RCMP say a dispatcher took a call this morning from a frantic young girl in Langford who said her mother had fallen in the backyard and wasn't getting up.
Dispatcher: "9-11, do you require police, fire or ambulance? Hello?"
Girl: "Um, my mommy fell down in the backyard and she wouldn't get up!"
Dispatcher: "Okay, hang on a second. I need you to calm down. What did you say, your mom what?"
Girl: "She fell down on the cement in the backyard and she wouldn't get up!"
The dispatcher learned the girl was at home with two younger brothers, ages 3 and 1, while her father was at work.
First responders arrived and found the 31-year-old mother outside on the patio having a seizure. She was treated and is now in good health.
The girl told officers her grandmother had taught her to call 9-11 in an emergency.
