A 6-year-old Moose Jaw boy is getting super hero status.
Moose Jaw resident Wendy Free says on Monday morning while taking out the garbage and her son Jordan to the bus, she fell down a flight of stairs in her apartment building, shattering her shoulder.
Free says her son Jordan knew something was wrong and at first asked if she was dead. She says once she told her son that she was hurt, Jordan ran for help. Free says her son is very shy and doesn’t like talking to people but “he managed to go to the neighbor across the hall from us and knock on the lady’s door and tell her than my mommy fell down the stairs and she needs an ambulance.” She says the woman called the paramedics right away and told her they were on their way.
Free says Jordan didn’t leave her side, even when the paramedics showed up. “He’s just my little hero! Without him I probably would have gone into shock and I’m grateful I didn’t hurt him on the way down as well.”
Once the two of them got to the hospital, Free says she was put under an anesthetic while paramedics put her arm back in place. She says once she woke up, medics had to try a second time to relocate her harm. She adds that she also needed an ECG because her heart was fluttering while under the first anesthetic. Once they got Free into a CAT scan, they found fragments and a shattered shoulder. Free will be in a sling for at least four weeks.
Free says Jordan stuck with her the entire time at the hospital. Paramedics gave the 6-year-old a stuffed animal named “Paramedic Pete” for his bravery.
Free adds that her son has continued helping her. “Monday night when we got home, he made sure that I sat down and he covered me with a blanket. If I have to walk outside, he will take and hold my hand.”
She says she used to call Jordan her “little man”, but now he is her “little hero”.
