KALAMAZOO, Michigan (WWMT) –

A 4-year-old stepped up to make a 9-1-1 call that ultimately saved her mother's life.

“I got up and that’s all I can remember,” said mother Centerria Manning. “I woke up and my daughter Calise, was standing over me and she was on the phone with 9-1-1.”

“Somehow, she fell, and I went to go see what happened,” Calise said.

In a nearly 7 1/2 minute call with 9-1-1, little Calise told dispatchers that her 9-months-pregnant mom was having a seizure.

“I was so proud of her, because we practice and I tech her because I am epileptic…I teach her the address and my full name and things like that, and how to dial 9-1-1,” Centerria said.

Centerria’s fiance was at work, and when she began seizing, Calise knew exactly what to do.

“She was like, ‘I told you I was gonna take care of you if something happened,'” Centerria said.

“It was really good to ride in the ambulance with mom, and she was really proud of me,” Calise said.

Centerria was taken to Borgess Medical Center where she gave birth to little T.J. Manning, who arrived healthy early Friday morning.
