Tech-Savvy 2-Year-Old Comes to Mom's Rescue, With FaceTime
byKaitlin StanfordMar 11, 2014
Two-year-old Bentley Toone is no stranger to FaceTime. He's been known to nab his mom's iPhone so frequently and "prank call" her friends, that they sometimes don't even pick up anymore.
Thankfully, though, his calls didn't go unanswered last week, when he dialed one of his mom's friends for help after she was attacked by a dog.
As his mom, Laura Toone, later told Tucson's KGUN-9 News, one of her foster dogs nearly bit her finger off when she tried to stop a fight between dogs. Reaching for the phone, Toone's bloodied, injured finger, made it nearly impossible to dial 9-1-1, and her 4-year-old daughters panicked and found themselves too scared to pick up the bloodied phone themselves.
But no matter. Seconds later, in came little Bentley, who picked up the phone and FaceTimed one of his mom's friends like a total pro.
"Here comes my son from the kitchen bringing our dish towel," Laura later recalled. He wiped off the blood himself and proceeded to call my friend on FaceTime."
That friend was Connie Guerrero, who had a strange feeling when she saw the call come through. "Something inside of me just told me that I needed to answer this FaceTime," she told KGUN. "All I could see was his little forehead and I said, 'Hi Bentley,' and it was quiet for a little bit and then I hear Laura screaming."
Bentley calmly asked the friend for help, and before his mom knew it, he was opening the door to let the firefighters in.
