QUEENS — A quick-thinking 6-year-old Queens girl is being hailed as a hero for helping to save her mother early Monday morning.
Little Sarah Mentouzi discovered her mom on the bathroom floor after the woman fell and hit her head, according to the NYPD.
Sarah immediately grabbed the phone, dialed 911 and calmly explained the situation to the 911 operator, police said.
The girl’s father works overnights and was not home when the accident happened, officials said.
Several police officers from the 112th Precinct, which covers Forest Hills and Rego Park, responded to the call and were able to administer first aid to the woman, before EMS personnel arrived and rushed her to a local hospital.
The officers stayed with the girl, applauded by the department as a “pint-sized hero,” until her dad got back home from work.
Little Sarah even won praise from NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton. “Great job calling 911 Sarah!,” he tweeted. “Perhaps a future member of the NYPD.”
Sarah's mom is expected to make a full recovery, police said.
