A 9-year-old girl saved her family’s life by unlocking the mobile phone with her father’s face and calling the emergency number. Her parents passed away after inhaling carbon monoxide from a generator at their home in Brockton, Massachusetts. Residents of the area use generators due to power outages due to strong winds and storms.
In an interview with Boston WFXT-TV, a Fox affiliate, little Jayline Barbosa said she was sleeping when she heard her father screaming for help after her mother died. But before he could help, he too lost consciousness.
Seeing the occupants unconscious, the girl took her father’s cell phone, which was blocked, to call the emergency service. “I unlocked it using my father’s face,” he told the network.
The rescue team reached on time and managed to save the couple. Jayline’s mother said that if her daughter had not had a quick wit, she might not have been saved.
