Mom Knocked Unconscious, Her Hero Son, 3, Called 911!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Tennessee woman who was rendered unconscious by a fall down the stairs said she is proud of her 3-year-old son for calling 911."


Heide Rafferty was climbing the stairs in her home when she fell and was knocked unconscious. Rafferty didn`t regain consciousness until she was in the hospital.


If a mother is knocked unconscious the average two or three-year old will soil his Underoos and bawl like a baby. During an emergency most little kids are as useful as a bag of kitty litter.

But Heidi trained her son to call 911 when he was only two, and it paid big dividends. Heidi should reward her son by buying him an iPhone 4S.
