(KTVI) – A 5-year-old girl is credited with saving her mother’s life by calling 911 but thinking her dad was on the other end.

According to CBS New York, Chloe Olson called 911 when her mother started to choke on a chip on Tuesday inside the family’s Ridgewood, N.J. home.

The 5-year-old Chloe sprung into action and dialed 911.

911 dispatcher: “Where’s your emergency… Hello?”

Chloe: “Daddy? Hello? Daddy, mommy’s choking.”

Dispatcher: “She’s choking?”

Chloe: “Yes, she can’t talk right now.”

Dispatcher: “Okay, she can’t talk?”

Chloe: ‘No.”

Dispatcher: “Okay, can you open the front door and I’ll get help over to you?”

Chloe: “OK.”

Dispatcher: “Alright, open the front door. I’ll be right there.”

Chloe: “Love you, bye.”

“She hung the phone and said ‘daddy’s on his way,’” Kerry Olson said.

And that makes this story even sweeter, the fact that Chloe knew to call 911 in an emergency, but she thought daddy would be on the other end to save the day.
