Talking parrot saves 2-year-old girl’s life

November 12, 2008

Denver (Chattahbox) — A babysitter’s parrot proved to be a baby saver. The bird named Willie is being credited with helping save the life of a 2-year-old girl who was choking Friday at a Denver area home while the sitter was in the bathroom. Willie’s owner Meagan, the babysitter tells what happened:

“While I was in the bathroom, Willie started screaming like I’d never heard him scream before and he started flapping his wings. Then he started saying ‘mama baby’ over and over and over again until I came out and looked at Hannah and Hannah’s face was turning blue because she was choking on her pop tart.”

Meagan stopped the choking by performing the Heimlich maneuver on Hannah.

“If (Willie) wouldn’t have warned me, I probably wouldn’t have come out of the bathroom in time because she was already turning blue, her lips were blue and everything,” Meagan said.

“He says ‘I love you’ and he says ‘mama’ and he says ‘step up’ and some other words that aren’t so nice,” she said. But Willie proved he knows when to really speak up!
