WEYMOUTH (CBS) – A little girl will be honored by Weymouth Police Wednesday for calmly calling for help for her mother one day last month.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Doug Cope reports

It was the middle of the night and Tiffany Lynch was pregnant with her third child. But she was sick, so sick she passed out from dehydration.

But her 3-year-old daughter, Aryanna, came to the rescue.

“I guess my daughter had unlocked my phone somehow and called her aunt to get help. She left a voicemail saying ‘Mommy’s not waking up and you need to call an ambulance,’” Tiffany Lynch told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Wednesday.

The aunt got the message and called 911.

Aryanna stayed calm and let EMT’s into their home.

Lynch said she and her daughter had been practicing what to do in case of an emergency.

“I’ve been trying, since she was about 2, whenever we go down a street, she knows what street we’re off of and she knows her address. I’ve been trying to get her to know that stuff for about a year now. It really worked,” Tiffany Lynch said.

“I’m extremely proud of her. We all are. We took her out to dinner and she had her own little day and today she gets to have a day. It’s very exciting for her.”

Aryanna will receive an award from Weymouth Police for her bravery.
