6-Year-Old California Girl Given Statewide Award for Saving Diabetic Great-Grandmother’s Life

A six-year-old girl is being called a local hero for saving her great-grandmother’s life.

Tamonyi Dixon was presented with a statewide award earlier this week.

71-year-old Dorothy Phillips is a very proud grandmother. She was right by Tamonyi’s side as her great-granddaughter received the 2018 911 Local Heroes Medal of Honor presented by California’s Office of Emergency Services.

The two live together and have been inseparable since Tamonyi was a baby.

“I love her so much, I don’t know what I’d do without her,” Phillips said.

Phillips is a diabetic and on a number of occasions Tamonyi has witnessed her fall and lose consciousness.

In one incident, Tamonyi was able to get the attention of a passerby who got her great-grandmother medical care.
