GLENDALE, Ariz. (FOX 10 News) - A 4-year-old Arizona girl is being credited with saving her grandmother's life. A swarm of bees was attacking her grandmother, and the little girl pushed a Lifeline button and called for help.
911 operator: And did you speak to her?
Lifeline: Not to her directly..her grandchild is in the
home..I guess she is outside yelling "help."
The 911 operator took the information from the Lifeline employee the morning
the 64-year-old woman was stung by Africanized killer bees.
The employee went on to explain just how young the hero in this story is.
911 operator: Okay and was this an adult grandchild?
911 operator: Okay, so a child is saying that a
grandmother is outside yelling for help?
4-year-old Whitney Chrisman knew her grandmother was in trouble so she did the only
thing she knew -- she pushed her Lifeline button.
When asked if she pushed the button and what she did next, Whitney replied,
"I talked to this thing that talked...I told them I told her that grandma
Betty was stung in her face and body multiple times. She
remains hospitalized. The good news is she was taken off a ventilator and
started the recovery process.
Betty's daughter Cindy Chrisman is grateful Whitney acted
Police are looking at possibly fining the person who owns the bees.
