A stay-at-home mother in Abington Township, Montgomery County was taking care of her two children Friday when she felt something was wrong.
“For the whole week, I was really tired. On Friday, I had some pressure in my head and tightness in my chest. I felt like I was going to faint.” Helene Ferrero said.
Ferrero gave her phone to her 3-year-old son, Dominic, told him to “call Daddy” and then she passed out. Luckily, Dominic did just that.
“[My husband] asked him, ‘is mommy asleep in bed or on the floor?’ and when my son said that I was on the floor, my husband rushed home from work,” Ferrero said.
Ferrero’s husband then brought his wife to the emergency room where she was treated for dehydration and fatigue.
Ferrero spent Friday night in the hospital for precautionary observation and said she is home now and is feeling better.
“We told him he is a good boy and that we’re so proud of him. He’s my hero for life.”
