Chicago Boy saves his mom with Facetime

A Chicago boy saved his mother's life by using Facetime on an iPad. 

When Elijah Riley's mom was having a seizure he couldn't find the phone to call 9-1-1, so he instead called his grandpa on Facetime.

His grandpa then called 9-1-1 and paramedics arrived to treat Elijah's mom.

"I think he did a phenomenal job. It's awesome when children are taught how to respond in an emergency, and we really can see their response is pretty incredible," said Joe Hernandez, Elijah's grandpa.

Elijah was just excited he got to be a hero to his pregnant mom.
