    GUTHRIE, OK — Simple song lyrics helped a 3-year-old Guthrie girl get help for her mother who had fainted.

    Jessica Eaves, 24, taught her daughter, Madelyn, a song that goes "911 green, 911 green.” That phrase helped Jessica Eaves.

    One week after rehearsing the song with her daughter, Eaves, who was three months pregnant, lost consciousness and fell down due to a medical condition called vasovagal syncope, a common cause of fainting.

    Remembering the words to the song, Madelyn picked up her mother's BlackBerry phone and pressed 911 and the green button, which connected her to a dispatcher.

    Great story, the mother should be very proud of her daughter.

    Note to Self: When I have kids, teach them this song.

    Only thing I don't get about the story:

    "The dispatcher who took the call May 27 was able to pinpoint the location within one block. "

    Don't all devices have internal GPS built in so Emergency dispatchers can identify the caller's location right away? I thought it would be closer than a block or so. Wouldn't that be just like Google Maps cell phone triangulation?
