It turns out that 5-year-old Allison acted the part of a little angel and saved her mom’s life that day.
When Tracy appeared lifeless at the bottom of the pool, Allison hurried there and dragged her mother to the shallow end of the pool, keeping her mom’s head above water. Then, she ran back in the house and called for help. Had Tracy been under water for a few seconds longer, the whole thing would have gone much worse.
Allison was taken to the hospital, and when she woke up, she had no idea what happened.
“I did not know where I was. They did not tell me (what happened) for a while.” Tracy told the Caller Times.
When Tracy recovered, her sister, Tedra, finally told her what happened. When 5-year-old Allison got her mom on dry land, she called her aunt Tedra and asked for help. Tedra immediately called 911.
“Allison was very calm through it. She was trying to tell me what happened,” said Tedra.
Allison has loved to swim since she learned at age three. She didn’t know that her mom had suffered a seizure, but she went on her instinct and realized something wasn’t right when her mom mother was lying lifeless in the pool.
“It’s amazing that she even knew what to do,” Tracy said.
This 5-year-old certainly deserves a big gold star for her quick response, doesn’t she? Share if you agree!
