DETROIT (AP) – A 5-year-old Detroit boy called 911, getting emergency workers to his home only minutes after his mother began having a seizure.
Akua McClain calls her son, Demonte Reilley, her “protector” and “guardian angel.”
Demonte woke up Tuesday to his mother having a seizure.
He tells WDIV-TV he “was scared,” but “wasn’t anymore when help was coming.”
Demonte not only called 911, but he stayed on the line with an operator, saying where he lived and how his mother was doing.
McClain has epilepsy, and seizures can be common for her.
She says that if her son hadn’t acted in the way he did, “God only knows what could have happened.”
