(S.D.)-Toddler Saves Life Of Grandma By Crying Out For Help

By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 09/04/2013 12:44 PM

     KEYSTONE, S.D. (AP) - A 2-year-old who's been practicing her words quickly came up with exactly what to say in order to save her great-grandmother.
     Little "Izzy" McLain reacted calmly and called for help when she saw 83-year-old Esther Zimmerman pass out and take a bad fall at the Big Thunder Gold Mine tourist attraction in Keystone.
     Izzy's grandmother, Sandi McLain, who owns the business, says the toddler yelled "Help, help! My grandma fell and needs help."
     One of the guides, Chris Conaway, responded to Izzy and called 911.
     Doctors say Zimmerman was dehydrated. She hit her head and cut her arm so deeply that it took nearly 50 stitches to close the wounds.
