5-year-old hero

We were very impressed today to learn about a five-year-old boy who knew to call 911 when his mother collapsed last week. And she's really proud of him. Francesca Washington obtained the 911 call and spoke with the mother and son today to find out how he learned what to do in case of an emergency.

Learning to smile again is not something Laura Patton achieved overnight. The pain of losing a child will never go away but she can finally tell the story of her angel, who inspired her to also take on a new career.
