Girl, two, comes to the rescue after mother passes out

GabriellaA two-year-old girl saved her mother after she collapsed by telling the emergency operator their name and address and tending to the woman as they waited for an ambulance.

The girl's mother, Carla Imbrenea, managed to dial 999 before suffering severe chest pains and shortness of breath. As she drifted in and out of consciousness, she heard her daughter, Gabriella, calmly telling the operator her mother's name and address.

Gabriella even followed the operator's instructions and placed a wet flannel on her mother's head and fetched her a drink.

When the ambulance arrived at the house in Bournemouth, Dorset, the girl carried her stool to the front door but could not reach the handle. She went back to her mother and helped to pull her up that she could let the paramedics in.

Ms Imbrenea, who recovered after being treated for a severe panic attack, added: "I have never spoken to Gabriella about what to do in an emergency, but she was so calm. Perhaps she will grow up to be a nurse."
