KALAMAZOO, Mich. – A little girl made her mother very proud when she stepped up and saved her life with a helpful 9-1-1 call during a medical episode.

WWMT in Michigan reported that Centerria Manning, who at the time of the 9-1-1 call was nine months pregnant, was suffering a seizure when her four-year-old daughter, Calise, picked up the phone and dialed for help.

“I got up and that’s all I can remember,” Manning told WWMT. “I woke up and my daughter Calise, was standing over me and she was on the phone with 9-1-1.”

The little girl explained what was happening to the dispatchers during the nearly seven and a half minute call. She also provided them with her and her mother’s home address, which is something Manning has been teaching her daughter to do since she was just two years old.

“I was so proud of her, because we practice and I tech her because I am epileptic. I teach her the address and my full name and things like that, and how to dial 9-1-1,” said Manning.

“It was really good to ride in the ambulance with mom, and she was really proud of me,” Calise said.

Just three days after that 9-1-1 call, Calise became the big sister to little T.J., who arrived happy and healthy this past Friday.
