Girl honored for saving father's life

COLD SPRING, KY (FOX19) - A 4-year-old Cold Spring girl was honored Monday for saving her father's life.

Sam Thompson was playing with model airplanes when a propeller severely cut his fingers.

Thompson said he went into shock, and told his daughter, Kayla, to call 911.

"You know if anything ever happened to daddy or mommy you would have to call 911 and we practiced on a fake phone," said Sam Thompson. "We did it a few times and it stuck."

Sam says his 2-year-old son, Lucas, also helped out by talking to him while they waited for rescuers to arrive.

Kayla was honored during the Cold Spring city council meeting.
