Parrot Raises the Alarm for Toddler

A Quaker parrot was recently honored by the Red Cross for saving the life of a toddler. It was Willie's cries of alarm which alerted his owner that the toddler was choking on her breakfast. Megan Howard had left the room when the parrot noticed the toddler was choking and yelled "MAMA, BABY" over and over.

Megan then dashed back to find the little girl turning blue and performed the Heimlich maneuver. Hannah is fine today, thanks to the alarm cried out by Willie.
