An incredible five-year-old girl helped to save her mother’s life by dialling 999 moments after seeing her mother collapse at home.

Sienna Adderley, showed maturity beyond her years when she called the Police to tell them that her mother, Katie Adderley, had collapsed at their home in Rugby, Warwickshire last Thursday.

A recording of the phone call released by Warwickshire Police yesterday, captures the exchange between tearful Sienna and a 999 operator. In the audio clip you can hear the calm Sienna talking the operator coherently through what has happened as ambulance crews try to locate her.

Sienna tells the operator that her mother is “collapsed on the floor” and “shaking” and that she can't "wake her up."

You can also hear the cries of Sienna’s younger brother Ryley Adderley, as she tries to keep him calm while her unconscious mother is on the floor.

Paramedics were eventually able to break down the door of the Adderley’s home and reach Katie.

She was treated at the scene by ambulance staff and has since has made a full recovery.
