A 2-year-old Houston girl is being credited with saving her mother’s life after using a cell phone to call for help when she collapsed. On Thursday, Larissa Taylor fell next to her 8-month-old daughter’s bed and was lying in a way that stopped her from breathing.

Her 2-year-old daughter, Lia Vega, picked up a nearby phone and pressed the call button twice to dial the last number called. That number was her grandmother’s. “Her mom will call and let her talk to me a lot, but using the phone and calling me on her own, I was very surprised,” said Bobbie Gonzalez. Lia told her grandmother her mom wouldn’t wake up and Gonzalez raced to her daughter’s side.
