Some of you may remember Mr. BH posting about my oldest step-daughter when she nearly died this past September. She is fully recovered now, and today, her 8-year-old son was honored by Fire Station 30 that responded when he called 911 for his mother.
His mother, Kristin Metcalf, spent the next four days on a respirator in a drug-induced coma and has since recovered. But the outcome, authorities say, would have been catastrophic if not for Stephen's actions.
"He called and actually told them what was going on. We knew what to expect when we got there," said Rob Smiley, one of the Marion County Fire Rescue paramedics who responded to the call in Summerfield.
Stephen, now 8, was recognized by firefighters Tuesday at a ceremony at Spruce Creek Station 30. That station, along with South Forest Station 6, responded to his 911 call.
We are very proud grandparents (and very thankful parents).
