A young boy, Tyrion Neal, has become an overnight hero after he used a virtual assistant, Amazon Alexa, to help save his mother's life after she had been left unconscious by a severe epileptic episode.
Tyrion's grandma, Natalie Neal, first suggested Tyrion learn how to use the virtual assistant app to be able to call her whenever he liked. This proved to be a brilliant decision since Tyrion was able to get hold of his granny via the virtual assistant app.
"I just thought for you know, him to tell me, ‘Hey grandmom, I love you. Hey Gigi, I love you'," Neal told WPVI-TV, according to a Western Journal article.
His granny was then able to calm Tyrion down while getting hold of emergency services, who quickly came and assisted his unconscious mother, Jasmine, who took to Facebook to gush over her little hero.
“So I’m in the hospital again,” Jasmine posted the day after her ordeal. “This boy saved my life!!! I’m so so so proud of him. He’s my hero. He’s saved my life twice now," she wrote on her Facebook page.

At this point, things were getting out of hand and residents from the area noticed that something was amiss.
