Some years ago now, when an Indiana father started to feel chest pains and struggle to breathe he called 911, only to lose his ability to talk just as the call went through. Enter his concerned 5-year-old daughter, Savannah, who stepped in to help. The resultant exchange between her and the 911 dispatcher is still making its rounds on the internet—this time via Bored Panda—with listeners finding it both heartwarming and hilarious.
