Toddler uses cell phone to save grandma
(KATV, Source: WREG) A three-year-old Crittendon County boy is being called a hero for knowing what to do in an emergency. His grandmother passed out, and he knew to call his mother, who just happened to be a 9-1-1 dispatcher.
Daniel Hight with news station WREG spoke to the young man, and his very proud family.
Daniel says, "Do you consider yourself a hero?" Three year old Landon says, "Yea"
Landon may be too young to understand how he helped save his grandmother Wednesday night when she passed out on the living room floor.
"Do you have a favorite super hero? Landon: "Yea, Spiderman."
When tragedy struck, just like a little super hero, Landon picked up his grandmothers phone; found his mother's name and called her.
Only a mother could know what he was saying. Landon: "mimi hurt Mimi fall"
His mom, Tori Bezley says, "I kept asking him to take the phone to her and he didn't and he usually does so I knew right away that something could be seriously wrong."
Tori called a neighbor but the door was locked and she couldn't get in. Landon opened the curtains and the neighbor said to Tori (over the phone) "I see her laying on the floor!"
An ambulance was called for Tori's mom. She was suffering from extremely high blood pressure. "I'm very proud of him because there could have been something seriously wrong. There was no way for me to know until I got off work to check on him."
It turns out Landon called the right person. Not only is Tori his mother, she is a dispatcher for the West Memphis Police Department. "He knew to call mom. He knows I work for the police, the fire and the ambulance. He's happy about that."
Spiderman saves the day. Landon: "yea!"
