Danger never comes. Always be prepared for that. From that idea, the mother taught four-year-old Monty to unlock the mobile phone and call the emergency helpline. But Wendy, a resident of Tasmania, may not have imagined that this knowledge would one day save her life. When she suddenly fainted at home, Monty saved her mother’s life by calling the helpline and calling an ambulance in the manner learned only a day earlier. There has been an uproar in the social media over this incident. At the age of four, the child has become a ‘hero’ in everyone’s eyes.
According to a Facebook post by Ambulance Tasmania last Tuesday, Launceston resident Wendy is a nurse by profession. He had already taught son Monty how to unlock the phone. Learn how to call ‘000’, the latest local ambulance service helpline. On the day of the incident, Wendy suddenly fainted at home. Four-year-old Monty then unlocked the phone and called 000 according to the rules taught by his mother. ‘Mum’s passed out’, she tells the Ambulance Tasmania phone operator. The child also said that the house dog barked but was a friendly pet.
Two paramedics arrived at the scene and were surprised the child knew what to do, according to the Facebook post. He followed all instructions perfectly and was very calm during the incident. Monty tells people he’s not a superhero. He is just a hero.
The child’s mother said, I am very proud. He is my little hero. He definitely saved me as I am today. “I think it’s really important that we tell them (children), if you’re worried, you should do it,” he said. Who knows, it might even save a life. Baby Monty received a certificate from Ambulance Tasmania for his presence of mind and bravery. And there is an outpouring of praise on social media. One wrote, I saw him on the news at night. He touched my heart. A little champion. Another person said, you did a great job Monty. You sure are a hero. What a brave little man!
