“She’s My Little Hero. My Lifesaver, and Yeah, I’m So Proud of Her”

On 8 July 2013, Tiffany Higgins jumped into the swimming pool at her apartment complex, but she hit her head on the side of the pool. While a friend tended to her, Tiffany’s six-year-old daughter, Jadyn, a Meadowbrook Elementary School first grader, called 911. Soon, paramedics arrived. Tiffany said, “I had a little bit of swelling on the brain, but it went away on its own. She’s my little hero. My lifesaver, and yeah, I’m so proud of her.” Jadyn learned how to dial 911 when she was two years old, but a year ago, a mishap occurred when she and a cousin were playing with a telephone and one of them accidentally dialed 911. Tiffany said, “Her and her cousin, Nina, were playing on the payphone just dialing numbers. All of the sudden, the police show up!” On 26 August 2013, the Mid-America Regional Council’s Public Safety Communications Program gave Jadyn a “911 Hero Award” and the Gladstone Department of Public Safety gave her a “Citizen Commendation Award.”
