PLYMOUTH, Mass. - Three young children were at home in Plymouth when their grandmother began having a seizure.
Seven-year-old Lylah knew what to do and called 911 immediately.
“My grandmother was really shaky and she fell off the bench,” she said. “I know to call 911 when someone is having something very bad.”
Emergency responders arrived quickly.
“Made a huge difference to her outcome,” Plymouth paramedic Chris King said.
But Lylah’s grandmother wasn’t out of the woods yet.
Because of the snow that had fallen, the ambulance was unable to get up the unpaved driveway.
“It was difficult, going up going down. We had to use a 4X4," King said.
Thankfully, the Plymouth Fire Department has an all-terrain Ford Explorer that was used to get up to the house, and help get the grandmother to safety.
“We call her the mini momma. She takes care of her little brothers all the time and she’s a very nurturing person,” Ashley Garvey, Lylah’s mother, said.
