CHASKA, Minn. (WCCO) — Quick thinking from a 6-year-old may have saved her grandmother’s life in Chaska Wednesday.

According to police, the girl found her grandmother lying on the floor of their garage, unconscious and bleeding from her head. The grandmother had been babysitting for her grandchildren.

Police said the girl called 911, just as she had been taught whenever there was an emergency, a fire, or if “bad guys” ever came to her home.

Paramedics responded and took the woman to be hospitalized.

They say she lost a lot of blood, but will be just fine thanks to some quick thinking by her granddaughter.

Police didn’t say what they think happened to cause the woman to fall.
