A little three-year boy is being hailed as a hero after saving his aunt by calling 911. The boy realized that his aunt was having a seizure and had the wits to do something about it. Tyrone Copeland Jr. was playing when he noticed that something was wrong. The little boy, who lives in Delaware, was with his aunt Deneene Copeland, who was having some trouble.
“She is laying there and she’s had a seizure and her mouth is closed,” the boy said.
Yes, this is how well the boy communicates, and officers were shocked that he could speak so well at the age of three.
“This is something that a three-year-old is saying,” said Wilmington Police Department officer Mike Ivey, who was very impressed by the little genius.
Police arrived on the scene to find the little boy tending to his aunt. He told them what happened, as his aunt was lying on the ground, not able to speak.
“He is just amazing because he knew his name, he knew his address, and he told us concisely what was wrong and where to go,” said Paula Thomas, one of the people who witnessed what happened.
The boy is getting a chance to be honored at a ceremony next week and the town considers him a hero for his efforts.
“Any other person probably wouldn’t have done that,” Copeland said. “I am very happy and very appreciative of what he did.”
