DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) -
A 4-year-old boy is being hailed as a hero and credited with saving his mother's life. Family members say Aiden Mitchell of Detroit did all the right things when his mom slipped into a diabetic coma.
It all happened around 9:30am Saturday on Plainview near Evergreen in Detroit. The boy's great uncle knew something was wrong because the child picked up the phone every time he called. The boy told relatives his mother, Angela, was "asleep" which was unusual. They got worried and came to check on her. 4-year-old Aiden was able to unlock the front door and let them into the house.
Angela was rushed to Sinai Grace Hospital. Doctors say another half hour and this story would have had a much different ending. Aiden knows he did something good. He grabbed our microphone and said, "I'm a hero!"
