A 3-year-old Nevada girl is receiving praise after she called 911 when her mother suffered a seizure and told a dispatcher her "mommy fell down."

Dispatcher Tammy Adamson says the child, Gracie, was able to confirm the street name of her house when the address showed up on Adamson's screen. Gracie told the dispatcher that she was alone with her 2-year-old brother at their home January 11.

The girl's mother says she had taught the 3-year-old how to dial 911 earlier that morning.

Help arrived within minutes, including Gracie's dad, Larry Goss, an East Fork Fire & Paramedic Districts' training captain who had heard the call come in.

The Record-Courier reported Friday Gracie was given a "Super Hero" button during a visit to the dispatch center and treated to a trip to Chuck E. Cheese.
