The little tot ran through the park, crossed a local street and approached two strangers to tell them about his aunt’s condition.
“He is just amazing because he knew his name, he knew his address, and he told us concisely what was wrong and where to go,” said Paula Thomas.
Thomas and another friend were outside of their home when the Copeland came asking for their help.
“His exact words were ‘she was laying there and she’d had a seizure and her mouth was closed, and she didn’t open her eyes and she was having a she wasn’t moving,” Thomas explained.
The two women ran to the little boy’s aunt and called 911. Paramedics quickly arrived at the scene and rushed the woman to the hospital where she recovered. WPVI-TV reports that the boy’s family was surprised to learn of the boy’s poise.
“I didn’t even know he was able to do that,” said Tyrone Copeland, Sr.
“Any other person probably wouldn’t have done that, and for his age, I am very thankful,” said Deneene.
And so are we. It is wonderful that little Tyrone was so brave at such a young age to help save his aunt’s life. We need more pint-sized heros like him in the world!
