A five-year-old girl named Savannah won people's hearts for saving her father's life.


Her phone exchange with a 911 emergency responder also made people laugh, as shown in a video posted to YouTube.

Savannah's father was having trouble breathing one day so he called 911 but he could not speak when her call was picked up. His little daughter decided to take charge of the call.

The emergency responder asked for Savannah's name and age and what the problem was.

"Um... My dad can't hardly breathe... You need to come real fast," she said in a calm tone.

When the 911 officer asked Savannah to unlock their front door, she quickly obliged.

"Okay, I am going to go... Don't worry dad!" she cried.

Later, the man on the other line asked: "Can you ask him if this has ever happened before?"

After asking her father, she replied: "No, so far so good. He's still awake."

When the dispatcher said that emergency medical responders are on the way, Savannah said: "Okay. We're in our jammies... and I'm in a tank top. So... I'll have to get dressed."

She continued, "I don't know what I am gonna wear, but... he really needs oxygen, real fast."

But the dispatcher told her to never leave her father. He said: "I want you to stay there with your daddy. I need you to make sure that he stays awake."

Like an adult, the little girl replied: "Okay. I got that."

The touching yet hilarious video has been viewed more than 11 million times on YouTube since it was posted on April 28, 2010.


More than a thousand comments were also posted.

"This little girl is extremely bright and has not been raised with a lot of mombo-jumbo baby-talk; the parents have done a great job of raising a very articulate child!" commented one user.


Another user added: "She's a smart 5 years old. I'm in high school and if that were me I would be there talking like I'm drunk."


In another heroic act by a toddler, a three-year-old girl used FaceTime to get her father help after he suffered a stroke.

Trevor McCabe, 27, was home alone with his daughter Molly on July 4, 2018 when he started to feel strange. He started hearing a loud humming noise and he felt like he was going to lose his balance.

Suddenly McCabe fell on the ground senseless, and that is when his tiny daughter saved his life.

She accessed the FaceTime feature on her father’s iPhone and called her mother, Devon, who is an ICU nurse.
