Thankfully He Knew How to Use FaceTime

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," an Indiana mom is alive today thanks to her 4-year-old boy ... and a little assist from technology. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

When Kalah Riley was in the middle of a diabetic seizure that could have killed her, her son Elijah tried to call 911, but he couldn't find the phone.

So he jumped into action, grabbed his mother's iPad instead, and used the FaceTime application to contact his grandparents by video conferencing in Florida.

Elijah's grandfather picked up, heard the story and sent the paramedics to his daughter's home.

Kalah was saved.

"I was a hero," the boy exclaimed later.  "A G.I. Joe hero."
