Watercooler Talk
MAPLE SHADE, N.J. (AP) — A 3-year-old New Jersey boy was hailed as a hero after he called 911 on Friday after his grandmother had a seizure. Jaden Bolli was at grandmother Patricia Bolli’s home in Maple Shade because his other grandmother, who was scheduled to watch him, was sick. When the 54-year-old grandma went to get out some puzzles, she had a seizure. The boy found a phone and dialed 911 for help as his mother taught him to do just days before.

Burlington County 911 Coordinator Monica Gavio said the call was very unusual. Usually, when a child that age dials 911 she says, it’s an accident.
