On certain cases, little children could be heroes who can save the lives of their loved ones as what the two kids from the US had shown.

The seemingly helpless but observant and exploratory kids who themselves desire and deserve more attention from adults can actually save some lives.

EVERY now and then, we get to read stories of heroism by toddlers (would you believe that!).

The seemingly helpless but observant and exploratory kids who themselves desire and deserve more attention from adults can actually save some lives.

In Florida, a toddler (presumably below 3 years old) accidentally called the police on February 23 during a medical episode that made him unable to do it himself.

Deputies with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 hang-up call (which is very common and typically involves disabled cell phones getting to the child’s hands) from an apartment complex at 10:45 a.m.

Despite what seemed a routine call, Deputy Nathan Kent responded anyway and noticed a toddler with no clothes on walking in the apartment’s parking lot unsupervised.

“Having a kid myself, I was more concerned and more so an unsupervised kid,” he said adding that when he looked around and saw the apartment complex, a door open with a bunch of kid toys.

When he and the kids went to the open door, he called out and heard a response. That was when he saw an unconscious man on the floor who was not breathing and had no pulse.

Kent started chest compression and the man started breathing again. He was rushed to the hospital for further treatment. Kent explained that the child messed around on the phone to save his father’s life.

In August 2020, 9-year- old Asaih Williams went swimming with his dad, Josh Williams, at the Quietwater Beach in Pensacola Beach when Josh noticed that after some time, his dad had not emerged from the water after jumping head -first.

After flipping his father over to ensure he did not drown, Asaih pulled Josh to shore.

The Florida dad was later transported to the hospital, where he is currently recovering from spinal fusion surgery, the outlet reported.

Once Josh was safely brought onto land, he was transported to Baptist Hospital as a trauma alert before getting moved to Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital, according to the Pensacola News Journal.

Doctors eventually determined that Josh's severe neck injury required him to undergo C1-C3 fusion surgery, which was successfully performed on Monday.
