Tamyaa Alexander was at her mother’s house when she fainted.
And after she received medical attention, she was informed her 2-year-old daughter, Serenity, used her cell phone to dial 911 before calling for her grandmother — who sent help.
Family members, as well as officials, are floored at Serenity’s actions but it is her mother who is beyond proud of her daughter calling 911.
“I didn’t know what to expect from my baby. Seeing my baby being so smart and intelligent… knowing what to do when something is going on with her mom, it really touches my heart,” said Alexander.
Alexander reveals that she is not sure what caused her to faint, but now, she is feeling fine.
Earlier this year a toddler in Florida saved his father – who was having a medical episode – and accidentally called the police.
Deputies with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 hang-up call from an apartment complex in Spring Hill around 10:45 a.m. on February 16, the office said in a media release.
Deputy Nathan Kent informed the outlet how hang-up calls like that are “very common,” and typically involve people’s disabled cell phones somehow getting into their children’s hands.
Kent responded anyway despite the circumstances, and when he did, noticed a toddler with no clothes on walking in the apartment’s parking lot with no supervision.
“Having a kid myself, I was more concerned, ‘Hey, why is there an unsupervised kid?'” Kent told the outlet “And that’s when I started looking around, and I saw the apartment complex door open with a bunch of kid toys.”
Both Kent and the child went in the open door, and after calling out, he received no response. And that is when he noticed an unconscious man on the floor who was not breathing and had no pulse.
The man was able to breathe again shortly after Kent started chest compressions, and was rushed to the hospital by paramedics for further treatment, per the release.
“Hospital staff advised the man was having a medical episode but would make a full recovery,” it said.
Kent revealed it was the child’s messing around on the phone that ended up saving his father’s life.
“The phone number, we looked later on, you could see that [the child] tried typing the password and it had 30 attempts that was the wrong password,” he said. “It was probably accidental that he hit the button.”
“My biggest thing is teaching your kids what to do in times like this, saying, ‘Hey, if something happens, go to a neighbor, get my phone, call somebody,'” he said. “Try to have some kind of setup just like a fire drill.”
