5 Years Old And Awarded For Saving Her Grandmother’s Life

Sometimes, the littlest of ones can do the biggest things. Kindergartner Virtuous Rose Bennett was recently honored as a hero by the city of Ripley, Ohio for calling 911 to save her grandmother Beverly Lipps’ life.

According to The Ledger Independent at the ceremony at her school, St. Michael, Howard McClain, a lieutenant with the Ripley Life Squad said, “About two weeks ago, Rose knew that her grandmother was very, very ill. She knew that her grandmother was not acting the way she normally would, so Rose picked up the telephone and called 911.”

Lipps was reportedly suffering from a stroke. Bennett, all of five years old, didn’t panic while talking to 911 dispatchers who activated the Life Squad, according to McClain. “She remained calm, courageous and she helped her grandmother.”

For her smarts and bravery Life Squad members gave her a shirt that said, “Future Cadet of the Ripley EMS.”  EMS presented Bennett with a certificate that read, “911 Hero Award, presented to Virtuous Rose Bennett showing bravery and saving a life. You are amazing, you are strong, you are smart and most of all, you are a hero.”

According to The Ledger Independent, she also met the members of Brown County Air-Evac and Ripley Life Squad who helped save her grandmother’s life. Lipps was flown to the University of Cincinnati for medical treatment.

As for grandma, she told The Ledger Independent, “I’m very proud of her. It takes my heart, I’m kind of in tears. It still brings me to tears to think that she saved my life. I’m very proud of her and it means a lot to me. I wouldn’t be here today it if wasn’t for that little girl.”
