    3-year-old walks 2 blocks to get help for her unconscious dad

    Frank Tafoya told CNN affiliate KOVR that he "took a mixture of medication I wasn't supposed to at the time -- a bed-time dose -- and I guess I collapsed."
    Alesaundra did exactly what she was taught -- walking two blocks to reach Fire Station 243, a firehouse the family passes daily.
    Once there, she told firefighters that her dad was "frozen" and wouldn't wake up, according to KOVR.
    "I've been here over 20 years," Capt. Robert Villalovoz said. "It's the first time I've had a 3-year-old walk up to the fire station."
    Alesaundra then escorted rescuers back to her house, where her father was "sitting in the living room, needing medical care," Villalovoz said.
    Doctors told KOVR that without the prompt medical attention, Frank Tafoya would have died.

    that's what I'm talking about!!!

    I try to teach that to my little ones survival skills like that - and the younger they get it, the better

    my 3 year old just learned tactical breathing - no more temper tantrums

    this is an excellent story Jenna, thank you for sharing it
