3 Year Old Girl Calls 911 For Mom on BlackBerry
Three year old Madelyn Eaves was able to get rescuers to her mother with the help of a little song and her mother's BlackBerry. Jessica Eaves taught the song "911 green" to her daughter in case of emergencies. When she collapsed from a condition called vasovogal syncope, Madelyn dialed 911
and hit the green call button, then was able to direct dispatchers to the house using descriptions of her surroundings. The year before, Madelyn had gotten help with another little song, "green green green." When Jessica collapsed, Madelyn repeated the steps, which called the last person Jessica had dialed and allowed them to get help. It's certainly nice to know BlackBerries are so easy to use, and a very ingenious idea from a dedicated mother.
