A nurse teaches her four-year-old son to call an ambulance

A frightening medical situation involving his mother saw a four-year-old emerge as an unlikely hero. Healthcare workers were astonished by what he did, with one stating that in their 15 years of service.

No child his age had ever done anything like it before. When his mother needed immediate help, a young boy from Launceston, Tasmania, did the impossible.

He tried to call his father after the incident because she was feeling unwell, but the call went straight to voicemail.

Fortunately, Monty was home with his mother and astonishingly had the ability to assist her when she needed it most.

Registered nurse Wendy Cocker made the decision to impart some useful knowledge to her son after taking her students on a field trip.

She recalled, “I have to tell him how to do it because I’m having seizures.”

She was aware of how important it was to teach him fundamental safety techniques, but she had no idea how soon they would have to put into practice what he had learned.

In September 2020, Wendy had an epileptic seizure and required immediate medical assistance.

This was the day after she had taught her son how to call 000 from both locked and unlocked phones.

Her son performed a brave act when she had collapsed in their Launceston home.

Wendy revealed, “After that, Monty called the emergency number within minutes, and that’s pretty much all I remember.

Then I woke up, and the ambulance was there, and everything was happening.” Monty remained calm and spoke to the operator on the phone while Wendy was unconscious.

The four-year-old initiated the conversation, saying “Mom has fallen” before answering the operator’s other questions.

The young boy also shared with the rescue team that his family’s dog loved barking at people.

Before the sound of the paramedics entering the house was heard, he reassured the operator that his dog was obedient.

When Wendy was revived by the paramedics and regained consciousness, she was proud of her son’s heroism.

“A little hero,” she said. “He really made a difference.”

Monty promptly replied, “Oh, I’m not a superhero, I’m just a hero,” when Monty’s grandmother asked to see her “superhero” grandson.

The child also received a certificate of appreciation from the paramedics’ team for his good deeds. An intensive care paramedic named Danielle Masters praised Monty for how he handled the situation.

She said that in her 15 years of service, she had never seen a four-year-old call an ambulance. Undoubtedly, Monty was a unique young hero who deserved all the praise he received.

Wendy urged other people to use her experience as proof that it’s never too early to teach new skills to children.

She explained that it’s crucial to teach them what to do if they’re worried because “it could save a life!”
