5 Yr. Old Girl’s Quick Thinking Probably Saved Her Mom’s Life.

Kids can sometimes be goofing around and call an emergency number for fun. But it’s no fun for mom and dad when they have to explain that their kid made a mistake.

In Ridgewood, New Jersey, Kerry Olson was just munching away on some chips when suddenly, she started choking. Her daughter, 5-year-old Chloe was scared, so she picked up the phone and dialed 911… thinking her dad would answer.

“Daddy, mommy’s choking,” she told the dispatcher who answered. The dispatcher, understanding the little girl was frightened and confused, told Chloe to go to the front door and open it and said “I’ll be right there.” So Chloe walked over to the front door, opened it, and said to the dispatcher, “Love you, bye.”

EMTs and police quickly arrived and helped Kerry, who had stopped choking and was trying to recover from it when they arrived.

Police chief John Ward said Chole, even at such a young age, knew enough to call 911 when something bad was happening. Her dad, Douglas, said his daughter did a great job, and he was very happy with the way she handled it.

    […] Capita che i bambini interpretino male cosa è un’emergenza e cosa no. Pertanto, capita anche che i servizi d’emergenza inviino i soccorsi quando non ce n’è bisogno. Ma ogni caso “non necessario” vale la pena se c’è anche una sola possibilità di salvare la vita di una persona, o almeno questo è ciò che pensava l’operatore di questa storia. […]

    […] Les enfants peuvent souvent mal interpréter ce qui est une urgence et ce qui ne l’est pas. Il arrive donc que les ambulanciers ou la police se déplacent inutilement. Mais chaque cas « inutile » en vaut la peine s’il peut s’agir d’une question de vie ou de mort, c’est du moins le raisonnement de cet opérateur d’alarme. […]
