Toddler saves mom’s life with a phone call/ HLN

When a Houston woman fell at home last Thursday and lay on the ground not breathing, guess who made the cell-phone call for help? Her two-year-old daughter.

Larissa Taylor took a fall next to her younger daughter’s crib and wasn’t able to breathe due to the way she was positioned on the floor, Houston’s KHOU says.

That’s when her 2-year-old girl, Lia Vega, came to the rescue. Lia grabbed a nearby cell phone and pushed the call button two times to dial the last number called — her grandmother’s.

“Her mom will call and let her talk to me a lot, but using the phone and calling me on her own, I was very surprised,” grandma Bobbie Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez rushed to her daughter Larissa’s aid after little Lia said her mommy wouldn’t wake up, KHOU reports. “Mommy fall down to the floor of sissy’s bed,” the toddler said she told her grandmother on the phone.

At the hospital doctors told Taylor she had suffered several seizures because she was hypoglycemic and diabetic. The seizures were brought on by her low blood-sugar level.

“I don’t know how my daughter knew to call my mom or anything,” Taylor said. “I never taught her how to use the phone and she saved me that day.”

The really incredible part? If Taylor had laid in her vulnerable position for 10 more minutes, she would have died, the family said doctors told them.

“Without her, I don’t know how long my daughter would have laid there and possibly died. It’s just amazing what kids learn without even being taught,” Gonzalez told KHOU.

Taylor told the station that she’s letting Lia get away with a few more innocent infractions than usual out of gratitude to her little girl. “I’ve been calling her my superhero. Because she saved me, she saved my life,” Taylor said.
