High-Tech Hero: Toddler, Bentley Toone, Uses FaceTime to Save Mom After Dog Attack (VIDEO)
A 2-year-old Arizona boy who had mastered FaceTime used his tech-savvy skills to save his Mom after she was badly hurt in a dog attack.
Laura Toone said she was out walking her dogs when a foster dog she was caring for attacked one of her own pets. She struggled desperately to get the dog to release his hold but, instead, he turned on her and “took a big bite that almost took her finger clean off,” she told ABC News.
She said she begged her 4-year-old daughters to call 911, but they were afraid to even touch the phone because it was covered with their mother’s blood.
Laura told reporters that she was just about to pass out and knew she needed help right away. She then saw her son, 2-year-old Bentley, rushing to rescue his Mom.
“Here comes my son from the kitchen bringing me our dish towel and proceeded to call my friend on FaceTime," Laura said.
Bentley is always on her iPhone, Laura told ABC News, and he is known for making prank FaceTime calls. Usually many of Laura's friends like Connie Guerrero ignore the ring. But that day was different.
"Something inside of me just told me that I needed to answer this FaceTime," Connie said. "All I could see was his little forehead and I said 'Hi, Bentley,' and it was quiet for a little bit and then I hear Laura screaming," she said.
Those screams spurred Connie to call 911 immediately. When the firefighters got there, Bentley was at the door to let them in.
Laura Toone says she is so thankful for her little hero.
