CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire emergency communications workers are honoring a level-headed 6-year-old who called for help after his mother suffered a seizure.
James Barker’s mother, Julie D’Onofrio, collapsed in November while making breakfast for him and his 1-year-old brother, Cody, at their home in Washington.
Dispatcher Al Davis asked James a series of questions and kept the boy on the phone while police were dispatched. James monitored his mother’s breathing and told Davis each time she took a breath.
James will meet dispatcher Davis and receive gifts and applause at a reception Saturday at the state’s emergency communications center in Concord.
