She is Molly,3, is being hailed as a hero after she used FaceTime to save her father’s life.
Molly’s dad, 27-year-old Trevor McCabe, was at home with his toddler, Molly, on the Fourth of July when he suffered a stroke. Molly quickly noticed something was wrong and used the FaceTime on her dad’s phone to call her mom at work.
“She did a FaceTime call, and she was so brave, and she told me that daddy got sick, and she showed me where daddy was, and so I saw him lying on the ground,” said Molly’s mother, Devon McCabe. Then Devon called 911, and emergency crews rushed Trevor to the hospital. Eventually, a blood clot to his artery in his brain stem had to be broken up.
“Probably, if I had to pick one artery in the brain, that’s the most critical artery that you don’t want to have blocked off,” Inova radiologist Dr. Edward Greenberg said.
“You were so brave when you called Mama, and you did such a good job,” Devon McCabe said to Molly. “They’re here because you’re a hero, like a superhero.”
Devon shared pictures of Molly wearing a cape and mask. “She got a superhero costume for being our superhero,” she added.
