Siobhan Sherbovich, a mom from Massachusetts, was in the car with her children when a terrifying incident took place.

And it’s because of her motherly instincts that this story doesn’t end in tragedy.

During their car ride, Siobhan’s 8-year-old son, Brayden, had somehow gotten himself tangled in his seat belt.

When she looked back, his face was turning blue and he was choking to the point of unconsciousness.

“Before I could even process anything, he was basically hanging from the ceiling,” Siobhan told CBS.

Despite her tireless efforts, she was unable to release the belt’s lock.

She knew that every single second counted — so instead of letting her fear take over, she took control.

Going on instinct, Siobhan bolted into a nearby hair salon to grab a pair of scissors. One of the stylists called 911 while Siobhan ran back to her car.

Now, first responders in Bedford, Massachusetts, are calling Siobhan a hometown hero because of what she did next.

One of them even said that in his 25 year-career, he has never seen anything like this before.
