OXON HILL, Md. -

A 6-year-old Maryland boy is being hailed a hero after what he did when his mom had a seizure.

Officials say the courage and resourcefulness Kenny Watson showed saved his mother's life.

Not only did Kenny call 9-1-1, but the first-grader took care of his mom until paramedics arrived.

The paramedics took his mother, Latoya, to the hospital, where she was checked out and is now OK.

Kenny says he did what he knew he had to do, and his mother is grateful her brave little boy was there.

Fox's Maureen Umeh has more details in this video report.
