SHERWOOD, Ark. — An 8-year-old was credited with saving her sister and niece's life when she called 911 after her sister suffered a seizure while driving. 

Jada Bell, 8, was in the car with her niece and older sister, Kindalynn Williams, who suffered a seizure while driving on a highway. Jada immediately called 911 and put the car in neutral. She also pushed on her sister’s leg to hit the brake pedal.

“I’m really impressed with how smart and calm she stayed,” 911 dispatcher Cody Harvey told NBC4.

She also pulled her 2-year-old niece from the backseat as a safety precaution.

“I was terrified. I was confused,” Jada said. “I didn’t know what was happening.”

Williams said she owes her life to her sister. “She’s a special one. We’ve known it from the get-go, we just didn’t know why,” Williams said.
