BBC Breakfast viewers were treated to an incredible story this morning, revealing the moment a three-year-old girl saved her mum’s life following a seizure.
Toddler Eva showed awareness far beyond her years to press an emergency alarm after her mum Emma collapsed in their home.
Thanks to Eva’s actions, the emergency services were called and an ambulance crew were able to give treatment.
Presenters Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt introduced a recording of the call, which ultimately saved Emma’s life.
‘My mum… she got very sick,’ Eva can be heard saying in the clip.
‘She’s not getting up. Mummy! Wake up!’ Eva adds, before saying her mum was ‘wriggling’.
The call handler spoke to Eva at the time, establishing that Emma had collapsed before sending out an ambulance. Emma went on to make a full recovery.
Eva also appeared on the show with her mum, speaking to Naga and Charlie alongside one of the ambulance crew who responded to the call.
Naga called Eva a ‘hero’, saying: ‘Eva, you did such a good job there! Emma, you must be so proud.’
Emma said: ‘It’s the first time [Eva] has witnessed a seizure. I’ve had [the condition] since I was nine.’
Eva gave the presenters a big smile and a wave, but got a little nervous when it came to answering Charlie’s questions.
Her mum said the incident had been a ‘daunting’ experience for Eva, but confirmed she’s ‘ok’ and that she was very proud of her.
Emma also joked: ‘She presses [the emergency alarm] when she’s not supposed to. She gets told off quite a bit for pressing it!’
