KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- A 4-year-old girl is being hailed a hero after she called 911 while her pregnant mother was suffering a seizure.

According to WWMT in Michigan, the mother said she blacked out, and all she could remember was waking up to the sound of her daughter in the midst of saving her life.

"I got up and that's all I can remember," the mother, Centerria Manning, told WWMT. "I woke up and my daughter Calise, was standing over me and she was on the phone with 911."

The little girl, Calise, was reportedly on the phone for more than seven minutes, detailing that her mother was having a seizure, and giving responders her Kalamazoo address.

The mother was nine months pregnant at the time.

"I was so proud of her, because we practice and I teach her because I am epileptic . . . I teach her the address and my full name and things like that, and how to dial 911," the mother told the station.

The mother said her daughter told her, "'I told you I was gonna take care of you if something happened.'"

According to WWMT, the little girl is now a big sister, as her mother has since given birth to a healthy baby boy.

"He's cute and I really love him," the girl told the station.
