Arizona toddler uses FaceTime to save his mother after dog attack

Detailed by ABC News recently, 2-year-old Bentley Toone of Tucson, Arizona came to the aid of his mother last week after she was seriously injured during an animal attack. While attempting to break up a fight between her dog and a foster dog the family was caring for, Laura Toone was bitten on the hand and nearly lost her finger during the incident. Losing blood rapidly from the dog bite, Toone called out to her children in order to get them to use her smartphone to call for an ambulance.

While toddlers using tablets and smartphones may be too much for some, 2-year-old Bentley Toone’s FaceTime expertise turned him into his mother’s hero. The boy’s mother, Laura Toone, had taken a walk when a foster dog she was caring for attacked one of her dogs. She tried breaking up the fight but the dog nearly bit one of her fingers off. “I begged my daughters to call 911 and they’re four and they were quite afraid to even touch the phone because it was covered in my own blood,” she said Friday from her home in Tucson, Ariz. Toone continued to lose blood and felt like she’d pass out soon. But Bentley saved the day. “Here comes my son from the kitchen bringing me our dish towel,” she said. “He wiped off the blood himself and proceeded to call my friend on FaceTime.”
