5-year-old boy calls emergency services to save his mother:

We all know how children can amaze us and make us smile with their innocent, spontaneous and unexpected antics. But the one thing that really can leave us speechless is when, even when they are very young, they manage to behave like adults  and do something extraordinary - perhaps, even managing to save someone's life.

This happened to little Josh, a 5-year-old boy who saved his mom's life thanks to his quick actions. In a moment of crisis for the woman, her son did not waste a single moment and did everything possible to get help and make sure that nothing happened to his mother. Let's find what happened:

Josh Chapman is a five year old boy who lives with his family in Telford in the UK. The little boy became famous on the web after he saved his mom's life. It all happened in just minutes. Josh was at home with his 41-year-old mom, Caroline, and while she was doing some housework, he was busy playing with his toys. Suddenly, he realized that something was wrong: his mom had collapsed to the ground and she was no longer able to speak. Suffering from diabetes, Caroline slipped into unconsciousness.

Faced by this scene, the child wasted no time and immediately took steps to help his mother. He looked for his toy ambulance which he loved to play with and dialed the number that was printed on the side of it - 112. Once on the phone with the operators, he explained the situation and help arrived in minutes.

"He saved my life," said the woman. She continued: "He had never used the phone before and when they told me what had happened, I was amazed. He saw the number on the side of his toy ambulance and called. I'm so proud of him" . These are the words of a mother who, without her son, might have passed away.

To officially reward and thank the child for his quick actions, the local police also did something to reward him. Josh was invited to the barracks and given an official police helmet - a little keepsake to make him feel like the hero he was. If he hadn't been at home and, especially if he hadn't acted with speed and intelligence, his motherwould certainly have been in big trouble.

Bravo, little hero!
