An adorable three-year-old girl is to be given a bravery award after she made a heart-warming 999 call to save her pregnant mum’s life.

Cute Emma spotted her pregnant mum Catherine unconscious at the bottom of the stairs in their home and instantly jumped into action. The brave girl called 999, gave her address, and explained her mum had fallen down the stairs with “a baby in her tummy”. But unflappable Emma calmly explained her mum was not bleeding, had banged her head and even checked the door was unlocked for the crews.
