Twitter users have praised the bravery of a little girl who jumped into action when her mother fell unconscious at home. 

Nurse Samantha Mizen, from Dorset, was at home with her children Ethan, four, Sophia, two and Finley, one, when she passed out from dehydration, knocking herself out as she fell face first.

Little Sophia used her fingerprint to unlock her Huawei phone, before contacing Samantha’s mother on Facebook messenger, who called an ambulance to her home. 

Sharing the story on ITV’s This Morning today, viewers flocked to Twitter to praise the youngster, who had never been shown how to use a phone.

Recalling the fightening incident, Samantha said: ‘I was at home and my husband Nathan had not long left to go to work. 

‘I had the three kids who were playing in the front room and I had gone to the bathroom.

‘I had a bit of a tummy bug that made me dehydrated and as I returned to the kitchen I collapsed. Unfortunately when I fell face first, I knocked myself out. 

‘That’s all I remember. I had felt absolutely fine before that, not dizzy or anything. The next thing I remember is coming to, and Sophia and Finley were sat on my back playing horsey.’

She continued: ‘The children hadn’t seen me collapse and Sophia walked into the kitchen to find me flat out. I also have a fleeting memory of coming to and Sophia was sat on my phone talking to my mum, then I passed out again.

‘Then I woke up and the ambulance crew were standing in front of me’.

Sophia had used Samantha’s fingerprint to unlock her Huawei phone and then pressed on Facebook messenger to call Samantha’s mother.

Talking about Sophia’s clever move, she said: ‘We’d always previously aimed safety talks at my four-year-old Ethan and thought he’d always be the one who stayed calm if he found one of us not breathing and know what to do.

‘Bless him, he just had a complete panic and cried and cried. I’ve never shown the kids how to use a mobile. We don’t have tablets or computers. I don’t know how Sophia knew how to do it.’

Letting Sophia demonstrate how she called her grandma, Samantha continued: ‘We call nanny on Facebook messenger most days and my chat is always open on my screen with a picture of her under the chat – which Sofia then pressed.

‘Sophia then said “mummy poorly”, and my mum used a landline to call an ambulance and kept speaking to Sophia and calmed Ethan. The two of them then got a blanket and put a pillow under my head. 

‘I was so confused when I came to and didn’t know what was going on or what the paramedics were doing. It was so scary my first thought was they were taking my kids from me.

 ‘I now recommend everyone drinks a glass of water a day’.
