Toddler's Phone Call Saves Mom's Life

Ad Feedback

Larissa Taylor is alive today because of a phone call made by her 2-year-old daughter Lia.

"I was going to wash my daughter's bottle and I blacked out," the mother recalled.

When she saw what happened to her mother, Lia picked up the cell phone and dialed her grandmother's number -- a skill she had never been taught.

"It was Lia and she said, 'Mama fell down,' and I said, 'Well, let me talk to her and I could hear that she put the phone close to Larissa and it was gurgling," grandmother Bonnie Gonzalez said.

"I said, 'Let me talk to your mom' and she said, 'She won't wake up,'" she said.

Lia's grandmother called 911 and then rushed over.

Paramedics said Taylor is diabetic, which she was unaware of. The mother made it to the hospital with only moments to spare.

"I can't imagine losing her," Gonzalez said. "Lia really came through for us that day."

"She's been wearing a towel around the house, calling herself a super hero, because mommy has told her about it. So definitely she's my little super hero," Taylor added.

Taylor and Gonzalez assume Lia learned to use the phone simply by watching them.

They hope that their story will encourage other parents to teach their children to use a phone as well.
