(CNN) — A two year old is being hailed a hero for saving his mother's life.
But it wasn't a call to 911 that helped to save the day, the toddler tapped into his mother's i-Phone and used her Facetime app to contact help.
Panic started to set in when Laura Toone says she desperately needed paramedics but couldn't dial 911.
"I begged my daughters to call 911, and they're 4 and they were quite afraid to even touch the phone because it was covered in my own blood form me trying to call 911," said Toone.
Toone says a foster dog she cared for attacked one of her own dogs. When she tried to break it up, the dog bit part of her finger almost clean off.
She continued to lose blood and right when she thought she was going to pass out, her son came from the kitchen bringing her a dish towel.
"He then wiped off the blood himself and proceeded to call my friend on Facetime," said Toone.
Bentley, 2, didn't know how to call 911, but he knew how to Facetime.
In fact, he face times Laura's friend Connie Guerrero so often, she usually just ignores it.
"Something inside of me just told me that I needed to answer this Facetime. All I could see was his little forehead and I said, 'Hi Bentley,' and it was quiet for a little bit and then I heard Laura screaming," said Guerrero.
From there, help was called, Bentley even unlocked the door for firefighters.
And now Laura is so thankful for her little hero.
