Lauren, 5, and her big sister Natalie, 7, saved their father's life earlier this week after saving him from crashing their vehicle. Screen shot via ABC Channel 7 News.
Two California girls acted quickly to save their father and themselves when they noticed he was unresponsive and driving erratically. The father and two girls, ages-7-and-5, were coming home after spending the afternoon playing mini-golf with their dad. The older sister, Natalie, said that she asked her dad if he was alright after noticing something was wrong. With her father didn’t respond, 7-year-old Natalie acted swiftly and bravely, unbuckling her seat-belt and climbing over her father to reach for his cell phone. Natalie called 911, reportedly scared and desperate, not knowing where she was.
The dispatcher asked Natalie if her father was able to talk. The 911 recording reveals young Natalie, screaming:
“Daddy, stop! Stop the car! No, he’s not stopping the car.”
Another driver, who noticed the erratic driving, also called 911.
Eventually, the car came to a stop as police found the car, which continued to be driven by their father’s weight on the gas pedal, escorted the vehicle into safety.
Natalie’s little sister, Lauren, 5, said that she was holding Natalie’s arm, telling her to be calm and to pray. Because of sister’s heroic actions, nobody was harmed.
