5-Year-old saves mom's life

DETROIT -- A five-year old from Detroit is credited with saving his mom's life.

He was lying in his bed with his mom when he woke up to find her having a seizure.

The son called 9-1-1 and told the operator where he lived and stayed on the phone long enough to keep the operator updated on how his mom was doing.

"They said okay, and they got somebody to come to our house and help my mama," said Demonte Reiley.

His mom says she may not be here if it was not for him.

She calls him her "guardian angel".
