A Real Diabetes Super Hero! He’s HOW OLD?

Aydhun Byars saved his mother’s life. She has diabetes and had slipped into diabetic shock. Aydhun, however, came to her rescue by dialing 911 and talking to the dispatcher until he was able to get someone to his house, which wasn’t an easy feat for him.

Not only is Aydhun only 5 years-old, he was born with a condition that causes him to have stiff joints.

In Aydhun’s life-saving phone call, he explains to dispatchers that “she’s sleeping but she opens her eyes and never answers me.” With no other adults around, Aydhun was able to rise to the occasion and rescue his mother from eminent seizures and other potential medical complications.

Aydhun is a 5 year-old hero!

Hear it in his own words and see what a brave and calm young hero can do in a scary situation!
