BURLINGTON, N.C. -- A 6-year-old boy from Burlington is being praised for saving his grandpa’s life.

The two of them were home alone when the grandfather, Willard Sumner, had a heart attack.

That’s when six-year-old Trevor Fowler called 911.

Fowler kept calm and gave the emergency operator all the information he needed to get EMS to the scene.

FOX8’s Stephanie Ando talked to the family, who says Sumner is expected to make a full recovery.
