Heroic Cork girl, 5, saved mother's life by FaceTiming Dad after mum suffered a stroke

A five-year-old girl is being hailed a hero after she saved the life of her mum who had just had a stroke.

He said: "She was crying and said that mammy was drinking her tea and now she was on the floor and can't get up. Damien had taught five-year-old Priya how to use FaceTime on her iPad a few months ago so she could call her cousin, grandparents and his family whenever she wanted to. "Her dad was ready to break down the door but then Priya was able to open the latch and let them in".

He told Neil Prendeville on Cork's Red FM: "Mary was seen to within seconds when she got there and she had a scan and that is when we found out that she had a stroke. A clot had travelled to the left side of her brain and that side had completely shut down. "Priya wouldn't have known that Mary was having a stroke, she just knew that her mam was distressed and that she couldn't get up".
