Toddler dials 911 to relate mom's 'owie'
A toddler in Washington state knew how to dial 911 and had a big enough vocabulary to tell the operator her mother was hurt and needed help.
Two-year-old Alana Miller said, "Momma owie," when the operator answered, ABC News reported Wednesday. The operator was able to trace the call to the child's home in Oak Harbor, Wash., where her mother had collapsed on the floor from a painful migraine.
"I was shocked that my 2-year-old had the ability and the knowledge to call 911 and get the help here," mom Erika Miller said. "I have actually shown her, a few months ago, 'This is what you do if there's a big owie,' and showed her what buttons to push. I am so proud of her." // Copyright 2007 by United Press International
