Bi-Lingual Youngster Named 9-1-1 Kid Hero
Eight-year-old Daniella Soto was awakened in the middle of the night, July 31st, and asked to make a call that saved her father’s life. She dialed 9-1-1 and then set about translating for both sides of the conversation, relaying reassurance from the 9-1-1 Telecommunicator to her Spanish speaking parents, and answering key questions that resulted in the quick dispatch of Lewisville Emergency Medical Services to her home that night. The young hero’s father, Daniel Soto, was experiencing severe chest pain. Daniella was named a “9-1-1 Kid Hero” today as a result of her actions at an award ceremony held in front of her fellow third graders at Lewisville Elementary School.
