(Cottonwood Heights-AP) -- A three-year-old is being credited with saving his mother's life after dialing 9-1-1.

Shauna O'Kelley suffers from kidney problems and fell to the floor in severe pain Monday afternoon. Her son Kaiden tried to wake her, but when he couldn't, he dialed 9-1-1.

Dispatchers say Kaiden was very calm on the phone and stayed on the line with them while emergency crews were sent to the home in Cottonwood Heights.

They found the two in the kitchen. Rescuers revived his mother and took her to the hospital where she is in serious condition.
