2-Year-Old Boy Saves His mother's By Calling Emergency Service

This 2 -year -old baby save his mother's life when he dialed emergency service after the mother suddenly collapsed.

According to reports, 2-year-old Riley Ward of Leicestershire, England, had the presence of mind to call the United Kingdom's emergency telephone number "999" in February when his mom lost consciousness in their home, telling operators: "Mummy's on the floor."
"All I remember is the room getting smaller and smaller and then I opened my eyes when I heard a police officer trying to kick my door down," Riley's mom, Dana Henry, told the Leicester Mercury. I managed to get up and open the door but then collapsed again."

Henry was rushed to the hospital, where doctors reportedly discovered a large blood clot and dangerous bleeding of her ovary.
"When the surgeon came to see me the next day, she said she had never seen anything like it. When I asked what would have happened if I hadn’t got to hospital, she said I would have been very poorly," Henry told the Leicester Mercury.

Henry said that she had long drilled it into Riley and his sister that they should call 999 if they were ever unable to wake her. She says, however, that she's still amazed that her little boy was able to follow those life-saving instructions.
This week, the East Midlands Ambulance Services, which responded to Riley's plea for help, has recognized the toddler's bravery and quick-thinking, the BBC notes. Riley has been awarded a paramedic teddy bear and a certificate.
