A young boy in Tasmania is being hailed a hero after saving his mom’s life with his quick-thinking and action.
Ambulance Tasmania shared about 4-year-old Monty’s heroic actions on Facebook, explaining that Monty was home with his mom when she experienced a seizure and fell over.
Four-year-old Monty called Triple-0 to help save his mum's life – just a day after he was taught the important lesson….
“Four-year-old Monty called Triple-0 to help save his mum’s life – just a day after he was taught the important lesson.
The little champion rang for an ambulance after he witnessed his mum Wendy have a seizure and fall to the ground at their Launceston home. He told the Ambulance Tasmania call taker, ‘Mummy fell over’ and let them know their family dog barks but is friendly.
The two paramedics who attended were amazed that Monty knew what to do, that he followed all instructions really well, and how calm he was during the incident.”
They added that Monty doesn’t consider himself a superhero – just a hero.
According to the post, his mom, Wendy, taught Monty how to unlock her phone and call the emergency number. “I think it’s really important that we do that and just tell them you should do it if you’re worried. You never know, it could save a life,” she said.
It certainly seems to be true since she now credits Monty and his quick action for saving her life!
“I’m so proud, he’s my little hero, he certainly has saved the day,” Wendy said.
Monty was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation for his bravery and action.
