A four-year-old boy is being hailed as a hero after speaking to emergency services and telling them his mother was having a seizure.
Kayla Mohr of Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin suffers from chronic seizures. She previously told her son Logan Mohr to recognize signs and symptoms when she’s having an episode.
“As he got older, we were like, okay, if this happens to mom, get dad,” she told WTMJ.
But one morning in October, Mohr’s husband was away on business. Sensing something was wrong, she dialed 911 and put the phone on speakerphone.
“Sheboygan 911, what is your emergency address? Hi?’ asks the dispatcher. Mohr had started convulsing before she could answer the dispatcher.
Luckily Logan was nearby. “My mommy is having a seizure,” he tells the dispatcher.
“She’s shaking her legs and her head,” Logan says.
‘Okay, can she call me?’
“No,” says the four-year-old.
“Do you know if that’s called a seizure?”
“Yes,” Logan replies. The four-year-old stayed on the phone with the dispatchers until they could reach Mohr at home.
He was also able to keep his 1-year-old sister calm throughout the incident.
“You can’t teach a child that, it’s just instinct,” says Mohr.
Logan received medals and a certificate from the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Office for his bravery.
“Logan may have saved his mother’s life by using 911 the right way,” the sheriff’s office stated. “He is an example of a real young hero. Logan received a ‘Life Saving Certificate’ and was able to meet Sarah, the telecoms officer, whom he spoke to during the call.’
Logan wasn’t the first unexpected 911 caller this year. In June, a restaurant worker called the police about a woman who was being held hostage after her notified them via the GrubHub delivery app.
Last week, a woman’s Apple Watch dialed 911 for her and recorded her husband stabbing her in the chest and attempting to bury her alive.
