Thursday, July 11, 2013

A 5-year-old girl is being hailed a hero.

Chloe Olson's mother choked on a tortilla chip at their home in Ridgewood, New Jersey.

And when Kelly Olson kept coughing and couldn't talk, Chloe knew exactly what do, she called 911.

Operator: 911 what is your emergency?

Chloe: Hello?

Operator: Yes.

Chloe: Daddy?

Operator: Hello.

Chloe: Daddy mommy's choking.

Operator: She's choking?

Chloe: Yes, she can't talk right now.

Operator: OK, she can't talk.

Chloe: No.

Operator: OK, can you open the front door and I'll get help over to you?

Chloe: OK.

Operator: OK, open the front door and we'll be right there.

Chloe: Love you, bye.

Fortunately, Kerry Olson stopped choking just before the local fire department, police department, and ambulance arrived.
