A 7 year old Bluffton girl was presented with a Life Saving Award for placing a 9-1-1 call for her unresponsive grandmother.
The Lima Memorial Health Systems said that Sydney Goodwin called the emergency number when her grandmother experienced low blood sugar that left her unresponsive.
The first grader dialed 9-1-1 and was able to inform them about her grandmother’s condition as well as state her location.
Her quick thinking is credited for saving her grandmother’s life.
The award was presented at the Bluffton Elementary School on Wednesday.
In addition to presenting Sydney with the award in the presence of her family, teacher and classmates, EMS Manager Doug LaRue discussed the importance of calling 9-1-1 in emergency situations to all of Sydney’s fellow students.
