COLORADO SPRINGS — It was a pretty big move for Colorado Springs 8-year-old Isabella.

“She took care of me when I really was in my worst and needed help,” her mom, Christina, said.

And her daughter was honored for it at King Elementary on Tuesday.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office says Bella called 911 twice, on the same day in January, to get help for her mother during two separate medical events. She was alone and nervous, but deputies said Bella remained calm, helped answer the dispatchers’ questions, and followed instructions until help arrived.

This week, during a school assembly held to address 911 education and safety, Bella was surprised with an award from the sheriff’s office. Her mom was there to celebrate, too.

“She made sure I got my medication, she did really awesome that day and told them everything they needed,” said Christina. “She’s just so amazing and smart, and I’m just so proud of her.”

As a bonus, Bella’s mom says her little girl loves shows about Emergency Dispatchers and the true stories of helping save lives. A true 911 hero, and a well-deserved honor.

Way to go, Bella!
