Some people can’t handle any sort of emergency. They experience anxiety and panic when put to the test, but that was not the case for four-year-old Calise Manning. Heck, no. The adorable girl could teach the Fonz a thing or two because she was calm and collected after her epileptic and very pregnant mom, Centerria Manning, had a seizure.
Centerria’s fiancé was at work, so it was just Calise and her mom at home when Centerria started seizing. But the youngster knew to call 911, having been practicing what to do – since she was two – in case her mom ever had an incident. This is proof that kids are never too young to know what to do if there’s an emergency. Even if there aren’t health issues to worry about, anything can happen. Kids are great at adapting to situations when they know what to expect. It’s when they’re not prepared when things can go awry.
Calise gave the dispatcher her full name, her mom’s name and their address. The call lasted over seven minutes but Calise was a champ the whole way through. Bonus for the adorable girl? She got to ride in the ambulance. Her mom couldn’t be any more proud, and rightfully so. And not only did Mom get to the hospital in time, she delivered a healthy baby brother named T.J. Well done, Calise — and Mom for teaching her early.
