As children become more advanced with technology, it may not come as much of a surprise that two-year-olds might know how to Facetime on an iPhone. But what makes this particular story so interesting is that one two-year-old was able to use the app to save his mother's life. 

Laura Toone was attacked by one of the dogs she cared for when she realized that she desperately needed help, yet would be unable to call the paramedics.

"I begged my daughters to call 911," she said, according to ABC News, "and they're four and quite afraid to even touch the phone because it was so covered in my blood from trying to call 911."

When the toddler called 911, he also tapped his mother's iPhone for facetime to get help

According to Toone, when she saw a foster dog she cared for attack one of her other dogs, she tried to break it up, but the dog bit part of her finger almost off.

Just when she thought she would pass out, according to the news organization, her son, Bentley, 2, used Facetime to contact her friend Connie Guerrero, and get help.

"Something inside of me just told me that I needed to answer his Facetime," she said. "All I could see was his little forehead, and I said 'hi Bentley' and it was quiet for a little bit, and then I hear Laura screaming."

From there, Laura was thankfully able to get the help she needed and is on a full road to recovery.
