HARWICH (CBS/AP) — A 4-year-old Harwich boy is being called a hero for dialing 911 when his mother had a seizure.
Mother Ashley Fontaine was getting ready for work Tuesday when she had the seizure.
Fontaine suffers from regular seizures so her son, Matthew Fontaine, knew just what to do.
He grabbed his mother’s cellphone and called 911.
Matthew stayed on the line with dispatchers until help arrived.
Matthew’s father, Tim, says he previously taught Matthew how to dial 911 and what to tell dispatchers.
