A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD girl has been praised by the emergency services in Spain after she helped save her mother’s life by calling them on 112.
The girl from Pamplona called the 112 emergency number to warn that her mother was unconscious on the floor of her home and was not responsive.
Pamplona municipal police and an ambulance rushed to the scene and found the woman unconscious and convulsing. She was immediately transferred to the Complejo Hospitalario de Navarra where she received treatment.
The police said the incident demonstrated the need for children to know how to make calls to the emergency services.
112 is the common emergency telephone number that can be dialled free of charge in nearly all member states of the European Union as well as several other countries of Europe and the world to reach the ambulance, fire and police services.
Most mobile phones are able to dial 112 even when locked or even, in some countries, with no SIM card present.
