HERO TODDLER: 2-year-old boy springs into action to save his desperate mother after dog attack

A tech-savvy 2-year-old helped rescue his mom after a dog attack left the Arizona woman injured and unable to call for help.

Laura Toone had one of her fingers bitten “almost clean off” last week while trying to break up a fight between her dog and a foster dog in her care — an injury that prevented her from being able to use a phone to dial 911.

“I begged my daughters to call 911 and they’re four and they were quite afraid to even touch the phone because it was covered in my own blood from me trying to call 911,” Toone told KGUN9-TV News in Tucson.

That’s when the half-as-old and twice-as-brave Bentley Toone came to the rescue.

“Here comes my son from the kitchen bringing me our dish towel,” Toone said. “He wiped off the blood himself and proceeded to call my friend on FaceTime.”

After Toone’s friend Connie Guerrero called emergency services for help, the iPhone-wielding toddler unlocked the front door to let them inside and attend to his mother.

The station reports Toone is “so thankful for her little hero.”
