Suzie McCash hailed hero after 999 call saves mother's life
The mother of a four-year-old girl who called 999 when she suffered a near-fatal allergic reaction has described her daughter as "brave and incredible".
Suzie McCash, from Tynemouth, rang police and calmly explained that "Mummy's got her eyes closed" and that she could not talk.
A recording of the call was released by Northumbria Police, who said she almost certainly saved her mother's life.
Rowena McCash was treated in hospital and has made a full recovery.
The GP suffered a severe allergic reaction at home last month and went into respiratory arrest.
