3-year-old boy calls 911, saves grandmother
TOWNSEND, Mass. (WHDH) -- A Townsend boy was praised on Wednesday for calling 911 when his grandmother was having a seizure.
“I pressed 911 for Nana, and Nana was shaking,” said Ethan LeBlanc.
Three- year-old Ethan LeBlanc described his recent 911 call after his grandmother, Roxanne Doucette, had a seizure in her Townsend home.
Dispatcher Nim Collins answered the call.
“Three and a half years old. I was flabbergasted. I have had adults that weren’t able to give me as much information as he was,” said Collins.
Collins says Ethan let the police into the house, and copied his Nana's list of medications on the copier for police.
Ethan wore the Townsend Police chief's cap after getting an award from town leaders. The chief also gave Ethan a new bike.
“He’s my hero. He’s definitely my hero. I’m very, very proud of him,” Doucette said.
Collins says Ethan's parents and Nana also deserve a pat on the back for teaching him about calling 911. And she says it's a good reminder for other parents as well.
