Transcript for Toddler Uses Smartphone to Save Mom's Life
Now to a much, much lighter story. It involves a 2-year-old who leapt into action in a surprising way after seeing his mom get badly injured. He resorted to a very techie rescue technique, and ABC's saczsara Haines is on the story. You will agree, you will see a kid glued to the screen of a phone or tablet. It's a battle to limit it. But here's where the tech-savvy of the younger generations saved the day. Babies on smartphones, toddlers on tablets. But in Tucson, Arizona, it made this tyke a hero. She was out for a walk when a foster dog attacked one of her dogs. He took a big bite off her finger. I begged my daughter to call 911. They were afraid to touch the phone. She needed help right away. Just in the nick of time, 2-year-old Bentley saved the day. Here comes my son bringing me the dish towel and proceeded to call my friend on facetime. Bentley, always on the iPhone is known for making his fair share of prank facetime calls, encouraging them to ignore the ring. But not this time. Something said I needed to answer this facetime. It was a good thing she did. All I could see was his little forehead. And I was like, hi, Bentley. And it was quiet, and then I hear laura screaming. She called 911 right away. And when the fire fighters got there, Bentley was at the door to let them in. A true hero for a mom in need. And to think he ran for the kitchen towel, called on facetime and waited by the door. That is a smart 2-year-old. A lot of kids are second-guesses the advice to keep the kids away from smartphones. And I lecture my sister, get the kids off those skreens. Put them back on.
