Yet another proud mum has her child to thank for contacting emergency services when she found herself in difficulty in the family home.

Like little Luke from Reading, four-year-old Calise Manning from Michigan had been educated from a young age about her mother's medical condition and taught what to do in case of an emergency.

So when Calise's pregnant mum, Centerria, suffered an epileptic attack last Wednesday, the quick-thinking little girl sprung into action and contacted the emergency services.

Explaining the situation to dispatchers, brave Calise said: "My mom is really pregnant and she's having a boy and she really needs help. She's shaking and she's having a baby."

Calise's call allowed her mother to receive the necessary treatment and thankfully the proud mum gave birth to healthy baby boy named TJ last Friday.

Praising her very brave daughter, Centerria said: "I was so proud of her, because we practised and I teach her because I am epileptic."

Dispatchers, who commended Calise on her bravery and quick-thinking, have recommended the little girl for an award!
