2-year-old saves mom with Facetime

Posted: Updated:

Laura Toone of Tucson, Arizona desperately needed paramedics, but couldn't dial 911. A foster dog she cared for attacked one of her own dogs. When she tried to break up the dog fight, the dog almost took her finger off.

Her daughters, although young at age 4, know how to dial 911. She says they were afraid to even touch the phone because it was covered in her blood.

The blood loss caused her to feel like she was going to pass out, and that's when her 2-year-old son Bentley brought her a dish towel. Toone said he wiped the phone off and called his mom's friend on FaceTime. He didn't know how to dial 911, but he knew how to FaceTime.

On the other end was Connie Guerrero. Bentley Factimes a lot with Connie to the point where Connie doesn't always take his call.  But Guerrero says something inside told her that she should answer this call. She could hear her friend Laura screaming in the background.

She called for help. When firefighters arrived, Bentley unlocked the door for them and his mom was able to get medical help.

Since the incident, all three children have learned to call 911 and what it means.
