Girl, 4, Credited With Saving 9-Months Pregnant Mother in Michigan.

“She’s shaking and she’s having a baby,” Calise tells a dispatcher in 911 audio obtained by CNN affiliate WWMT. “My mom is really pregnant and she’s having a boy and she really needs help.” Her mother Centerria Manning, who was 9-months pregnant and epileptic, had apparently fallen to the floor in the midst of a seizure on Wednesday. She said they had practiced 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.” Her fiancé was at work at the time. In a lighter moment during the nearly 7 1/2 minute call, a dispatcher asks Calise “How old are you honey?” Calise responds, “four,” before adding an important detail. “Yes, and I’m almost getting bigger.” Wearing an “I’m the Big Sister” T-shirt, Calise told the WWMT reporter at the hospital “It was really good to ride in the ambulance with mom.” Kids’ Health recommends teaching your children how to safely and properly use 911 at an early age, and stresses that they should be taught to only call 911 in the event of an actual, real emergency, and not, for example, to talk to Santa Claus.
