-- After her 6-year-old's "calm and collected" demeanor during a medical emergency, Southern California mom Jovanna Nunez said today her daughter is her "hero."
When 6-year-old Madison found her mother unconscious Saturday morning in her Hemet, California, home, she called her grandparents for help.
The Hemet Fire Department responded and found Nunez unresponsive but breathing, according to a statement from the fire department.
Nunez said when she woke up, there were EMTs surrounding her bed.
"The little girl maintained her composure" the whole time, the fire department statement said.
"[Madison] seemed calm and collected when I came to," Nunez said. "She was still on the phone with my parents... To my parents she did seem worried, but when I saw her she seemed very calm."
Nunez called Madison "my hero" and said she talked to her daughter Saturday about the importance of calling 911.
"The first thing she told me was that she's glad that [her grandfather] answered the phone and told her what to do," Nunez said.
