Four-year-old Caleigh Concannon is crazy about dogs. She and her mother, Heather, were volunteering for the first time at Golden Oppertunities for independence,a Walpole farm that trains service dogs. This 4 year old had to go to the bathroom, and when Caleigh got inside, she saw something and ran back to her mom saying “there’s someone sleeping on the floor,” It was Dr. Michael Flynn, the farm’s director of operations, and he wasn’t sleeping, he was having an epileptic seizure.
This little 4 year knew that he need to get help as her dad has diabetes and her father’s diabetes means he can pass out, so the family has talked about what to do if that happens. To Caleigh, this was the same thing, so she told her mom right away and they called the ambulance and rescued Dr Michael Flynn.
The Walpole Police awarded Caleigh a Community Hero Award.saying“The situation could have been a lot worse than it was and so as a result, she really is a community hero,“. Dr Flynn also extended his gratitude to this little hero! Saying “I am so proud of her. I am just in awe at the responsibility and the seriousness and her perception in handling the situation,”. Watching this event will make you too proud about her!
