Little girl saves father after hearing him struggling to breathe at night: “She felt something was wrong”

A little girl reacted quickly and saved her father when she heard him gasping for breath as she was about to get a glass of water.

It all happened in the middle of the night, and the man owes his life to her.

What are the details?

Rochelle Ramsey lives in Port Glasgow, Inverclyde, and she rescued her dad after she heard him struggling to take breaths at night, according to The Epoch Times.

It was 3 a.m. when the little girl got up to get a glass of water. She heard her father, Chris Ramsey, 38, gasping several times as she headed for the kitchen.

She immediately woke up her mother, Sheryl Oribine, 37. The woman dialed the ambulance to get help for her husband, who suffers from multiple sclerosis.

Chris cannot walk and has low immunity, so his daughter stepping in made a life-saving difference for his condition, as the outlet points out.

“Rochelle ran into the room, and we realized Chris’s teeth were chattering, but his temperature was through the roof. I remember the paramedic telling me, ‘Your partner needs to get to the hospital right now.’ Then they told me, ‘If it weren’t for your little girl, he wouldn’t be alive,’” Sheryl said.

And Rochelle couldn’t stop smiling once she found out that she had saved her dad.

“I won’t forget that night for the rest of my life. If she hadn’t stepped in, Chris wouldn’t be here,” the mother added.

Sheryl is convinced most kids would have brushed the sound off and gone straight back to bed, but Rochelle had a strong intuition and just felt “something was wrong.”

“She’s his guardian angel in disguise. Chris keeps saying, ‘I can’t believe I’m still alive,’ and calls Rochelle his ‘little hero,’ which is exactly what she is,” Sheryl concluded.
