Boy Saves Grandmother’s Life
It was supposed to be a fun night at grandma’s for six-year old Joshua Doucette, but it ended in a rush to save her life. “Grammy was picking stuff up, and I was in the living room with Maddy because she woke up watching cartoons and I heard a big bang.”His grandmother had collapsed in the next room just after calling out his name.”I was out, knocked myself out,” said fifty-two year old, Fern Little of Veazie. She suffers from a heart condition that’s caused her to black out before.Joshua knows that she wears a lifeline necklace with an emergency button.”I tried to press her button, but I wasn’t strong enough, so I went and got Uncle Paul and Aunt Karen in the bathroom.”"They wouldn’t have heard me. They’re very hard of hearing, and with the door shut they would never have heard me,” said Little.Joshua told them to call 911, while he ran to turn on the porch light and unlock the door for paramedics.His grandmother believes that if it wasn’t for his composure, she wouldn’t be alive.”I truly believe in my heart if it had not been for him, I wouldn’t be here today. He’s my little hero.”And he will still get a chance to look after her for years to come.
