Calise Manning is being referred to as a hero for for calling 911 and helping to save her pregnant mother’s life after she apparently fell on the floor after suffering a seizure on Wednesday in Kalamazoo, Michigan, CNN reports. “She’s shaking and she’s having a baby,” Calise reportedly told a 911 dispatcher. The 4-year-old continues: “My mom is really pregnant and she’s having a boy and she really needs help.” The mother was then taken to the hospital where Calise’s healthy baby brother, TJ Manning, was born Friday morning.
Calise’s mother, Centerria Manning who was 9-months pregnant and epileptic, said she had practiced with her daughter what to do in an emergency. “I was so proud of her, because we practiced and I teach her because I am epileptic,” Manning said. “I (taught) her the address and my full name and things like that, and how to dial 911.”
According to CNN, the dispatcher who handled the call told the station that she was recommending an award to be given to Calise for being calm in a scary situation.
