It wasn't all bad

4-year-old Massachusetts girl named a Community Hero after saving man having medical emergency

Caleigh Concannon, 4, is being heralded as a Community Hero in Walpole, Massachusetts, thanks to her quick thinking when she saw a man having a medical emergency.

In early October, the animal lover and her mother, Heather, were volunteering at Golden Opportunities for Independence, a farm that trains service dogs. She went inside to use the bathroom, and she found Dr. Michael Flynn, the organization's director of operations, on the floor, having an epileptic seizure.

Concannon's father has diabetes, and her family taught her what to do if he ever passed out. Remembering this, she ran outside and alerted her mother, who called an ambulance. Flynn has recovered well, and told CBS Boston he is "so proud of her, I am just awed at the responsibility and the seriousness and her perception in handling that situation." The Walpole Police Department was also impressed — they named Concannon a Community Hero and rewarded her with several movie tickets. Catherine Garcia
