During the call, the dispatcher was asking Savannah her name and age. Afterward, she was asked what the problem was.

Speaking calmly, she said, "Um... My dad can hardly breathe... You need to come real fast.”


The dispatcher then told the young girl to unlock their front door. Luckily, Savannah was an obedient girl and followed the instruction.

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

Shortly after, the responder asked, "Can you ask him if this has ever happened before?"

She asked her father and replied to the person on the other line, "No, so far so good. He's still awake."

The dispatcher then informed her that help was on the way. Suddenly, Savannah said, "Okay. We're in our jammies... and I'm in a tank top. So... I'll have to get dressed."


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

The dispatcher instructed her that she should never leave his father and like an adult, Savannah said, “Okay. I got that.”

Following the incident, the dispatcher Jason Bonham said about the call, “Most people when you talk to them, they’re hysterical. Every time I’ve listened to it, it’s amazing. She’s just a little person.”

Since the video was uploaded on YouTube on April 28, 2010, it has been viewed over 11 million times with many people finding it heartwarming but funny.


One YouTube user commented, "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! [sic]"

Another one wrote, "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. [sic]"



In another viral story, a three-year-old girl’s father had a stroke. At the time, they were the only people in the house. The toddler used FaceTime to get help and saved her father’s life before it was too late.

27-year-old Trevor McCabe was all alone with young Molly on July 4, 2018. Everything was good when he suddenly felt sick. He was hearing a loud humming noise and was on the verge of collapsing.

It was only a matter of time until he fell on the ground. Luckily, little Molly was quick on her feet and grabbed her father’s iPhone. Using the FaceTime feature, she called her mother, Devon – an ICU nurse – and asked for help.
