TOWNSEND, Mass. — A 3-year-old boy is being credited with saving his grandmother’s life after he called 911 when she suffered a seizure.

Townsend police dispatcher Nim Collins told WCVB-TV about how Ethan LeBlanc, 3, called 911 to report that his ‘Nana,’ Roxanne Doucette, was in need of help.

The grandson stayed on the phone with Collins for about 10 minutes until an officer arrived at his grandmother’s home.  Not only did the boy know to unlock the front door for the officer, but he also knew to grab his grandmother’s medication list from her purse after he arrived.

Doucette described her grandson as a hero and said he stayed by her side, talking to her throughout the wait for help.

The local police department gave Ethan a new bicycle in recognition of his actions.
