N.J. girl helps choking mother with touching 911 call

0 comments

A 5-year-old New Jersey girl helped her choking mother with a 911 call that had an unusual ending: "Love you, bye."

Kerry Olson was choking on a chip at the family's home in Ridgewood, and Chloe knew what to do: Call 911.

But the girl thought her father was on the other end of the phone. Here's what she said on the call:

Dispatcher: “911. Where’s your emergency?"

Chloe: "Daddy? Hello? Daddy, mommy’s choking."

Dispatcher: "She’s choking?"

Chloe: "Yes, she can’t talk right now."

Dispatcher: "Okay, she can’t talk?"

Chloe: "No."

Dispatcher: Okay, can you open the front door and I’ll get help over to you?"

Chloe: "OK."

Dispatcher: "Alright, open the front door. I’ll be right there."

Chloe: "Love you, bye."

Kerry Olson told CBS New York that her daughter told her "daddy's on his way" after she hung up the phone.

Olson stopped choking fairly quickly, and emergency crews were at the home within minutes.
