Sometimes, children surprise you with the mature things they’re capable of doing. One 4-year-old boy shocked everyone after he successfully managed to make contact with the authorities when his aunt had a medical emergency. Now he’s being honored for his quick-thinking actions.

On May 16, Grayson Buchanan was with his mother’s aunt Tammy — his great aunt — when she began having seizures.

Tammy handed little Grayson her phone and told him she wasn’t feeling well. Grayson managed to contact a neighbor and family friend by finding the woman’s photo on his aunt’s cell phone and clicking it. The woman then dialed 911 for the boy.

First responders from the Virginia Beach Fire Department managed to save Tammy’s life. She is now recovering, all thanks to Grayson.

To commemorate Grayson’s heroism, the Virginia Beach Fire Department invited him to the station, gave him a lifesaver certificate, a personal tour of the station, and even let him try on a firefighter hat. While there, he recounted for reporters his story of saving his aunt.

Grayson’s mom, Jessica, couldn’t help but tear up at the station.

He actually saved my aunt. I get emotional because Grayson was actually diagnosed with a developmental delay when he was younger,” Jessica told WAVY.

Thank goodness Grayson was taught to use a phone. Please SHARE the story of this little boy hero with your friends and family on Facebook!
