A little girl named Savannah Hensley makes a 911 call and saves her dad’s life. Way to go, Savannah!
Savannah’s dad, Frank, began to have trouble breathing and pains in his chest. He immediately made a 911 call, but then was not able to speak due to his condition. At the time, his daughter, Savannah who was five years old at the time got on the call. Savannah followed the dispatcher’s instructions on the call, including actions, such as unlocking the door. All the while encouraging her dad with “Don’t worry, dad!” And telling the dispatcher, “You need to come real fast!” The dispatcher got the information he needed an ensured Savannah and her dad were safe, and then he encouraged Savannah to stay with her father and help, as needed. That’s where the sweetest part of the 911 call comes.
Savannah on the 911 Call
Savannah stayed on the 911 call for almost 10 minutes, and she responded to her father’s situation with courage. When the dispatcher told Savannah that the emergency crew was on the way, she told him, “We’re in our jammies…and I’m in a tank top. So…I’ll have to get dressed.” She told the dispatcher that she didn’t really know what she was going to wear and then told him she would be in her room changing. When the dispatcher encouraged her to stay with her father and make sure he stayed awake, she agreed. Next Savannah began to tell the dispatcher on the 911 call, “We have a dog…that’s really…um…small. He’s friendly.” She explained that he does bark a lot, and called her dog to join her at her dad’s side. Soon after, the emergency crew showed up. Listen to the call on the video below.
