Four-year-old finds her mother unconscious on the floor and dials 911, saving her life

Isla Glaser was at home with her mom and her siblings when something that would have scared even the bravest adults happened.

When the child went into the kitchen, she saw her mom, Haley Glaser, lying on the floor unconscious.

Isla and her sister, who is 2 years old, and her twin brothers, who are 1 years old, were at their home in Franklin Township, New Jersey, when their mom had a medical episode.

Even though she was only 4, she was brave and called 911 right away.


“My mommy fall down, and she can’t talk,” Isla said to the 911 dispatcher on December 6, 2019.

Then she said that her eyes were closed, but she wasn’t sleeping, and that they were in the kitchen.

She stayed on the line and answered the dispatcher’s questions calmly. She told the dispatcher where she lived and that her dad was at work.

Isla was able to unlock the front door of the house when the fire department came, and she called the dogs away as they came in. She even fed and comforted her younger siblings.

News 12 New Jersey says that Haley was rushed to the hospital because she had a bacterial infection. She stayed there for a few days while she got better.

Haley and her husband have taught their older kids what to do if something like this happens. This is an important life skill, especially since Isla’s mom has a health problem.

“She easily could have been scared, and she was faced with a really potentially dangerous and scary situation, but she handled herself with complete and utter control and composure,” her proud mom told ABC News.

A 4-year-old girl was honoured for calling 911 when her mother fell down, which likely saved her life.
The local police department was so impressed by Isla’s brave actions that they set up an event to honour her.

“I know adults that cannot handle this type of an incident with that much bravery, poise, and distinction,” Lt Phillip Rizzo of Franklin Township Police said.

The girl’s “brave and heroic efforts” were praised, and she was made an honorary junior police officer.
