Brave Little Girl Who Called 911 to Save Dad’s Life Has Adorably Hilarious Conversation With the Operator
Kids surprise you with their extraordinary antics almost every single day. Boys and girls alike. Their energy and emotions are contagious but rarely do we witness a 5-year-old being composed and level-headed. Well, here is Savannah Hensley for you.
Savannah's father dialed 911 for help when he began experiencing chest pains and was having trouble breathing. However, as soon as the call connected, he could not talk due to his condition. That's when this little brave girl stepped in and narrated her father's predicament to the 911 operator with composure.
Much to the dispatcher's surprise, Savannah took matters into her hand and was perfectly calm throughout the call, even going as far as to reassure her father.
In the later released transcript of the phone call, the brave girl came straight to the point. "My dad can hardly breathe," Savannah informed the dispatcher. She answered every question with a presence of mind far greater than her age and her voice did not derail even once.
The dispatcher assured her that help was heading toward her home. She then let the dispatcher know it was an emergency and they must rush. She said, "Ok, you need to come real fast."
After a while, the dispatcher asked her to check if the front door was open. The young girl thought about it for a second, said no, and immediately ran to leave it unlocked for 911 to enter.
Jason Bonham, the dispatcher, was amazed by her calm demeanor as she continued to inform Bonham of other issues.
The Hancock County dispatcher, Bonham, said, "Most people when you talk with them, they are so hysterical. Every time I have listened to it, it is amazing. She is just a little person," reported Bored Panda.
As soon as Bonnham informed Savannah that help was on the way, the little one showed concern about her dress. She casually informed Bonham about the dress she was wearing and how it was inappropriate to be like that when first responders arrived.
"We're in our jammies, and I am in a tank top. So, I will have to get dressed," Savannah pondered. She kept oscillating between her father's situation and her dress. "I do not know what I am going wear, but he really needs oxygen real fast," Savannah kept reminding the dispatcher.
The adorable thing was how supportive she was to her father and kept him reassured, saying: "Don't worry, Dad!" She had complete control of the situation.
The brave girl stayed on the line for 10 minutes and informed Bonham about their family dog, Lou. She told the 911 operator: "We have a dog that's really small, and he kind of barks."
When Bonham asked her to stay with her dad until the ambulance arrived, she told her dog, "The ambulance is on the way. Come on, Lou."
She kept repeating the phrase, "so far, so good" throughout the call and told her dad to stay calm. I mean, what a girl!!
People on YouTube had a meltdown at how brave and level-headed the girl was throughout the emergency. Her father was treated and everything went well.
A YouTube comment by @ellencicenia6111, read, "This little girl is extremely bright, and has NOT been raised with a lot of mumbo-jumbo baby-talk; the parents have done a great job of raising a very articulate child." We second that.
