Facetime hero


Technology in the hands of children can sometimes do more harm than good.
But for one Tucson family, it turned their tiny toddler into a hero.
      
Panic started to set in when Laura Toone says she desperately needed paramedics but couldn't dial 911.

"I begged my daughters to call 911 and they're 4 and they were quite afraid to even touch the phone because it was covered in my own blood from me trying to call 911."

Toone says a foster dog she cared for attacked one of her own dogs. When she tried to break it up, the dog bit part of her finger almost clean off.
She continued to lose blood and right when she thought she was going to pass out.

"Here comes my son from the kitchen bringing me our dish towel and he wiped off the blood himself and proceeded to call my friend on facetime."

2-year-old Bentley didn't know how to call 911 but he knew how to facetime.

In fact, he face times Laura's friend Connie Guerrero so often, she usually just ignores it.

"Something inside of me just told me that I needed to answer this face time. All I could see was his little forehead and I said hi Bentley and it was quiet for a little bit and then I hear Laura screaming."

From there help was called Bentley even unlocked the door for firefighters.

And now Laura is so thankful for her little hero.
