Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. Some time ago, Savannah Hensley’s father Frank found himself in trouble, experiencing chest pains and having difficulty breathing. He dialed 911 to get help, but just as the call went through, Frank lost the ability to talk. And that’s when Savannah stepped up. Back then, she was only 5 years old.
After the operator made sure that help was on its way, he tried keeping Savannah by her father’s side in case things took a turn to the worse. What followed next was probably the smartest and most adorable conversation a girl this young can have.
“Most people, when you talk with them, they’re so hysterical,” Hancock County dispatcher Jason Bonham, the man who received the call, noted. “Every time I’ve listed to it, it’s amazing. She’s just a little person.”
For nearly 10 minutes, Savannah stayed on the line handling a scary situation with courage. Scroll down to check out their exchange and tell us what you think about it in the comments!
