Little Ra Sheed Jackson was home with his grandmother Nov. 29 in Richmond, Va., when the older woman suddenly collapsed. However, the smart 4-year-old jumped into action, knowing exactly what to do, WRIC reports.
“Nana was on the floor,” Ra Sheed told the news station. “She was bleeding.”
Ra Sheed’s mother was at work, but the little boy dialed his aunt, who had gone out shopping.
“I was at Wal-Mart just looking around, and I get a phone call from my nephew saying his nana had passed out,” Sheree Wright said. “I was like, ‘I’m on my way, I’m on my way.’ I said, ‘Hang the phone up and call 911.’”
Ra Sheed, who had learned how to call 911 from his teachers, did just that, staying on the phone with paramedics until they arrived at the home. When the emergency responders couldn’t get in because of the chain lock on the door, the resourceful little boy sprung into action again.
