A 3-year-old boy from Wilmington, Del., is being called a hero after he saved the life of his aunt when she suffered a seizure while with him in the park Friday.
Tyrone Copeland and his aunt, Deneene Copeland, were at a playground in Speakman Park when she began to have an episode.
"Her got hurt and they took her to the hospital," Tyrone said.
Deneene was going in and out of consciousness.
"I am very happy and very appreciative of what he did," Deneene Copeland said.
The toddler ran across the park, across 28th Street and communicated the situation to a pair of complete strangers, Paula Thomas and Gena Butler, who were outside of their home.
"He is just amazing because he knew his name, he knew his address, and he told us concisely what was wrong and where to go," Thomas said. "His exact words were, 'She was laying there and she'd had a seizure and her mouth was closed, and she didn't open her eyes and she was having a she wasn't moving," she explained.
The women ran to the park and found Deneene, who was known to suffer from seizures.
Paramedics arrived within minutes and took her to a local hospital.
"Any other person probably wouldn't have done that, and for his age, I am very thankful," Deneene said.
