2-year-old boy uses FaceTime to help save mom after dog bite

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, Ariz. -

A little boy in Tucson, Ariz., is being credited with saving his mom after a vicious dog attack.

Laura Toone says she desperately needed paramedics after a foster dog she was caring for attacked one of her own dogs. When she tried to break up the fight, one of the dogs nearly bit her finger off.

Toone says her 4-year-old daughters knew how to call 911, but were scared of the blood all over her iPhone. That is when 2-year-old Bentley ran in with a dish towel for his mom and proceeded to call his mom's friend through FaceTime.

"Something inside told me I needed to answer this FaceTime,” said Toone’s friend, Connie Guerrero. “All I could see was his little forehead. Then it was quiet for a little bit and then I hear Laura screaming."

Guerrero says the 2-year-old likes to FaceTime with her a lot and was thankful to pick up this time.

The Toones say they have since taught all of their children about dialing 911 and to call in any dangerous circumstance.
