Toddler Calls 911 and Saves Mom’s Life

A 3-year-old from Emporia, Kansas is being called a hero after he used a smartphone to dial for help for his unconscious mom. While prepping her son Sylas for bed, Jessie Wagoner lost consciousness after experiencing a sudden drop in blood sugar. The super-smart tot grabbed his mother’s iPhone and managed to unlock the phone, press the call button, dial 911, hit send, and tell a 911 dispatcher, “My mommy is sick.” Within five minutes, police were able to trace the call location and come to Jessie’s aid.
