The mother, Kaitlyn Cicalese, couldn't be any prouder of her son’s initiative and alert thinking. Without which, she would not have been saved.

Kaitlyn Cicalese spoke to ABC News: “He saved my life, because I was under the tap. I would have drowned. I turned on the shower, that’s all I remember. Every day is a challenge for us… He asks me now probably a billion times a day if I’m going to be okay.”

“He’ll ask me now, ‘are you going to have another seizure?’. No, I’m okay, I’ll tell him. ‘Are you going to die today?’. No, I’m not going to die today…”
