Girl, 4, Saves Younger Brother With 911 Call

AMITYVILLE, N.Y. -- They talked about calling 911 in Grace Varley's pre-kindergarten class. She must have been listening.

The 4-year-old New York girl calmly dialed 911 for help Wednesday after her younger brother choked on a piece of chicken and passed out.

According to CBS News, Grace's grandmother was babysitting the girl and her 2-year-old brother, Myles, when he began to choke.

For a few minutes, the situation was desperate. Grace's grandmother was unable to clear the boy's airway and had carried the child outside yelling for help.

"When Nana ran out of the house I called 911," Grace said.

The police sergeant who took her call told Newsday that the little girl was "cool and collected" on the line.

Within minutes, a police officer who lives near the family's Amityville home was on the scene. Officer John Adriella was able to dislodge the food and get the child breathing again. He is doing well.

"Grace surprises us constantly," Grace's mother, Alison, said. "She’s far better than I could ever be, and that’s all you ever really hope for your children."

When asked about how she learned to handle such a situation, Grace -- who said she loves her brother, princesses and the color pink -- told CBS News that her teachers had given them instructions in class.

When I was 4 I don't think I would have been capable of using a phone never mind calling 999 (911).

Re: Girl, 4, Saves Younger Brother With 911 Call

Buttons are so much easier. No offense if you don't remember dial phones. My mother had one for the longest time and my nephew wanted to make a call and he looked confused. He was probably about six or so and he's twenty years older.

I said, "Oh, you've never seen one of these old dial phones, have you?" He hadn't. Things were so much slower years ago.

Even if you watch any old B&W television, SO much slower, but, the police, even if there were only two in the office for an entire town, were always right at the house of a victim, leaving the station empty, lol! Every adult in every house smoked, drank and had coffee on, not matter what time of day or night, too!
