A five-year-old was praised online for his quick thinking after he dialled an emergency number to ensure his mother,  who had fallen unconscious, received medical help.

According to a Daily Mail report, Josh Chapman was playing with his brother when his mother fell unconscious at their home in Telford, England.

The five-year-old soon managed to dial 112, after spotting the emergency number on the side of his toy ambulance, the West Mercia Police said in a Facebook post.

Despite using a phone for the first time, the five-year-old managed to say on the call, while the police located Josh and his 18-month-old brother.

Josh’s mother, Caroline, was found to have fallen into a diabetic coma because her sugar levels had dropped.
