A 5-year-old New Jersey girl dialed 911 when her mother began choking on a chip, thinking her father would be on the other end of the line.
"Daddy, mommy's choking," Chloe Olson of Ridgewood, N.J., told the 911 dispatcher Tuesday.
Kerry Olson, the girl's mother, had recovered by the time rescue units arrived, but police and her family commended Chloe for her quick thinking.
"You could tell she was a little concerned and scared," said Police Chief John Ward, according to The Associated Press. "She still knew enough to talk to the dispatchers, work it through."
Below is the transcript of Chloe's 911 call:
911 dispatcher: "Where's your emergency? ... Hello?"
Chloe: "Daddy? Hello? Daddy, mommy's choking."
Dispatcher: "She's choking?"
Chloe: "Yes, she can't talk right now."
Dispatcher: "OK, she can't talk?"
Dispatcher: "OK, can you open the front door and I'll get help over to you?"
Dispatcher: "Alright, open the front door. I'll be right there."
