INDICE DE GALERIAS
MARION, Iowa (AP) — A 5-year-old Marion girl is being credited by emergency workers with helping save her mother's life.
Des Moines television station KCCI reports (http://bit.ly/18KvD7E) that little Leighlla Andrews called 911 on Wednesday when her mother suffered a diabetic seizure.
Stephanie Andrews says she was diagnosed with diabetes two years ago. As the mother of three young children, Andrews decided to write out directions for medical emergencies and discuss what to do with her oldest, Leighlla.
Seeing her mother unconscious Wednesday, Leighlla dialed 911 and told the dispatcher that her mother's "mouth is bubbling".
Dispatchers had a difficult time locating the house, where the Andrews had moved only a week earlier. Leighlla stayed on the phone with dispatcher for 17 minutes until emergency responders arrived.
