    I just love how the woman called her "darling", "sweetie" and lovely, with a calm and soothing voice ❤

      @The horrible story of a man that was forced to connect his youtube account to google+ probably, the weird thing is i saw a night time news piece about that, but it was workplace specific, like saying to a woman, hello love, darling, sweethaert etc, which being a londoner its hard not to, whether youre a man or woman, the amount of times a female black cab driver or cashier has called me darling, love or sweerheart ive lost count, but the woman on this programme was american and i remember thinking what doss she know wbout london dialect, and that type of old school cockney vernacular, yeah im not saying in a really formal setting using thise terms are ok, but they're not sexual at all, if you come from london its just like calling someone a friend, mate or pal, but in an office setting saying can you get me those papers, cheers love, thanks darling, maybe not cool but this american "expert" ended hundreds of years of london based informal expression in less than a minute.
      Im 38 I'll never change if a lady is getting off the dlr and needs some help and i help and she says thanks its just normal to say, ah thats ok sweetheart no worries, or if im talking to a cashier i still, ah thanks love, and vice versa by females, of a certain class, these terms are still very persuasively used, maybe its just the area you was brought up in etc, cos tbh ive never noticed many of my middle class work colleagues talking like this, but its too engrained in me now and i wont change, although im more conscientious now, especially at work, and if its a female colleague i have banter with i might jokingly say get that for me gorgeous, but not someone that wasnt a friend, wouldn't be appropriate, but im not gonna stop completely i wouldnt know how to talk otherwise lol

      I'm more impressed at how well this 3 year old can communicate. I feel like too many parents these days shower their kids with baby talk and you get 3 year olds who aren't taught to speak in clear phrases and are still all "goo goo Ga Ga"

      ♡•_Kate_•♡ Month ago +1

      Children are intresting.
      Unless they are severely hurt, they will not cry or freak out unless they see the adult doing It.
      As the mom was passed out, the child didn't necessary fully understand what's wrong. Only that the mom fell and is sleeping.
      So yeah, the child didn't understand the whole situation and so remained calm.

      @EssBee have you not seen where dispatchers have completely discarded a call because there feelings had gotten hurt or they feel they can't help or they think it's a prank and there all trained to. Or like that 19 boy who had gotten shot and the dispatcher got his feelings hurt so he told the person on the phone to deal with it and hung up. It's more common then you think.

    This operator knows how to talk to kids which you can tell by how gentle and sweet she asks the little one on what happened.

      Only if you teach them. I've known parents of 3 year olds that don't at all encourage them to develop their speech and pronunciation and are delighted when they say a word that's barely legible. Those kids would sound like "MOMMY FALL. MOMMY OUCH. BOOOBOO HEAD."

      No. It's just to enable other people to assess the extent of the possible injury. Otherwise you can't tell if the person is sleeping or if they fell unconscious.
      Generally, the less energy the brain uses, the better it is for the recovery - this is why sometimes doctors will induce a coma.

    • Saly Luz
      Saly Luz Month ago

      This shows the importance of teaching children their address and how to dial for emergency services; and practicing by acting it out many times. When it is a repetitive thing that happens many times a week, even very young children can learn these skills. It really makes a big difference in true emergency situations like this, and can be life-saving! I have seen the difference it makes, as a teacher of preschoolers. If you have young children in the home, just explain what we do, calmly demonstrate and act it out, then take turns like you’re doing a little skit or play. I used to pretend I had fallen down on the carpet in the classroom, and have children act out what they would do with a disconnected phone there in the classroom. Young children love pretend playing! & Thankfully the emergency number is only three digits long in most countries. Any child who knows their first 10 numbers can also dial for help. It’s also important to teach them to never dial unless it is a true emergency. I’ve known two situations where parents had to pay a steep bill when emergency services were repeatedly dispatched in response to a child’s call, only to find there was no real emergency. We explain to children that an emergency is if they can’t wake us up, if we fall down seem to be asleep, if we appear to be broken or bleeding, or we’re having trouble breathing; or if we ask them to call. 💙🙏🏽💙

      It really does depend on the child. I suspect this 3 year old has an old soul.
      When my nephew Henry was 5, sis and family made annual journey 12 hours to NJ to visit relatives at the holidays. Only time they saw these relatives. Henry wanted to stay with his Aunt while everyone else went shopping. Hours later, nighttime, BIL & sis returned to freakish huge assortment of emergency lights and realized they were at Aunt's house. Parked and ran towards house. First cop to see them, "You must be Henry's parents! He's fine!" He had been taught about 911. But he also explained his Aunt was diabetic and gave additional info he knew simply from hearing the adults talk. She had slipped into a diabetic coma and he hadn't panicked at all.
      He has an old soul, too.

      @Limi V doing this to confirm what’s being said and also because that’s how you talk to children. Repeating what they said shows them that they’re being listened to and makes them more likely to maintain a conversation

    This is why it is super important to teach our kids about safety and 911 emergencies at an early age, baby girl handled this so beautifully, it truly brought a tear to my eye. In the future when I have Children, I will definitely be teaching them about all safety, like who to call if mom/dad is hurt, what to do if a stranger tries to talk to you ( a.k.a stranger danger) or what to do if someone's physically, mentally, emotionally, or verbally hurting you. I pray they're never afraid to let me know they feel unsafe.
    Edit: pertaining to the last statement, I think that's just more about me being so afraid that I could be putting my child in danger over a man. So I already have it in my head that in the future if the father and I split (not that I have a boyfriend rn, anways lol), I don't think I'll start another relationship until my kids are grown. I just feel like I would want to eliminate any potential that they could be hurting because of a man I brought into our home.

    In a scenario where a person can’t tell the address, how quickly can they trace the caller?

      Depends on the country and area. In many 1st world countries( in the cities), emergency calls can be triangulated to the location. Others can look up addresses linked to the number if it's a public number. In my town, everyone knows everyone so if you say "my name is Jimmy bimmy, and am 3" we get to ya real quick. I worked at an emergency call center in the U.S. and they can find you real quick.

      My mom's had chronic health problems since before I was born. One of my earliest memories is of her teaching me to call 911,her name,our address and phone number and all the same information about my grandmother. I think every parent should teach their child these basic things.

    Aww this little one did an amazing job! When I was pregnant, I was a preschool teacher and I used to take the kids on walks in the winter. As I got bigger, I made sure that one of the things we did was practice "what to do if teacher has an emergency" and I'd show them where my cell phone was and how to dial 911 or express dial the daycare centre, just in case I fell or went into labour or something happened and I couldn't talk for some reason. I know it sounds paranoid, but it was one of the things the kids were worried about, so showing them what to do made them feel better as well as me.

    i cant stress enough who important is to teach children their home address and obviously tell them when to use it, even if the babygirl was able to call if she didn't know her address help could have never arrived on time. never underestimate children's memory or ability to understand situations, they pick up on situations more than some adults do.

      It's not training, it's a natural phenomenon called child-directed speech or "baby talk" that most adults instinctively switch to when talking to children or pets. It's well known in psychology.

      @John Blackburn As bad as it sounds to say, it would be better for a mother to be pregnant, if she ever falls down the stairs with her baby, because her womb would provide some protection. If she were to fall with the baby in her arms.... Yeah I'm not gonna finish that thought. Either way, I hope this never happens to anyone.

    • infinite death
      infinite death Year ago

      @Petitio Principii It doesn't make you intuitive at all. in fact, the fact that he thought it meant she's pregnant, proves that english isn't his native language. "She's got a baby," could mean that she's pregnant, is holding a baby, or is a mother.

    • infinite death
      infinite death Year ago

      @YT and FB vaffanculo "She's got a baby," is a very general statement. It could be taken either way, that she's pregnant, has a baby in her arms, or is a mother. Regardless of that, the title literally says "Pregnant mum." So, you'd know either way. Your interpretation of something doesn't mean you automatically know what it means. Interpretation can be bent, depending on your perspective, understanding and knowledge.

    • John Blackburn
      John Blackburn Year ago

      @YT and FB vaffanculo The operator actually did understand it .... we are trained for all case scenarios this situation showed that the MOTHER fell down the stairs with her baby OR a pregnant mother fell down the stairs ... either scenario both the MOTHER and baby fell down the stairs

    • Ryan Martin
      Ryan Martin 2 years ago

      TheXvid Google e Facebook vaffanculo There was no way to know for sure whether she was pregnant or simply holding a child. So the operator did the right thing by asking for clarification of the child’s age. This information is important for the paramedics and thus it is better to not make any assumptions.
