Toddlers have a basic sense of right and wrong, but what about identifying something that is dangerous, even when it doesn't naturally appear so for them?
There's no telling how a three-year-old toddler knew she needed help, or how she learned to dial the police in case of an emergency, but one day while home alone with another baby, she made a decision that would change the rest of her life.
Most kids dial 911 because they don't know any better, and there's countless instances where officers have showed up to only find children needing help to finish their homework, grab an item from a top shelf, or report the "Grinch" for trying to steal Christmas.
That being said, there's been times when young children have saved the lives of a family member by calling the police.
For example, a five-year-old boy called 911 and saved his father's life after noticing that he was lying on the ground unresponsive.
In this case, however, a little girl unknowingly saved herself and a one-year-old boy.
When officers arrived at the trailer home, they were shocked by what they saw.
