[January 28, 2010]  MAPLE SHADE, N.J. (AP) -- A 3-year-old New Jersey boy was hailed as a hero after he called 911 on Friday after his grandmother had a seizure.

 Jaden Bolli was at grandmother Patricia Bolli's home in Maple Shade because his other grandmother, who was scheduled to watch him, was sick. When the 54-year-old grandma went to get out some puzzles, she had a seizure. The boy found a phone and dialed 911 for help as his mother taught him to do just days before.

Burlington County 911 Coordinator Monica Gavio said the call was very unusual. Usually, when a child that age dials 911 she says, it's an accident.

But she said it shows that young children can be taught how to get help in an emergency.

Patricia Bolli is in a hospital, where doctors are trying to diagnose her.
