4-Year-Old Calls 911 and Saves Pregnant Mother

Four-year-old Calise Manning of Kalamazoo, Michigan, is being hailed as a hero after calling 911 when her 9 months pregnant mother fell on the floor while having seizures. Her mother, Centerria Manning, suffers from epilepsy and shared with CNN, "I was so proud of her, because we practiced. I teach her—because I am an epileptic—the address and my full name and things like that, and how to dial 911."

In a copy of the 911 dispatch call, listeners can hear little Calise telling the emergency operator "She's shaking and she's having a baby ... My mom is really pregnant and she's having a boy and she really needs help."

In an effort to lighten the mood, the dispatcher asks Calise, "How old are you, honey?" to which Calise responds as many toddlers do, "Four ... and I'm almost getting bigger."

The mother was taken to the hospital and Calise's baby brother, TJ Manning, was born shortly thereafter.

Talk about the best big sister ever!
