*Give this young man his props. Keon White, who is just 10 years of age is getting praise from doctors in North St. Louis County because he helped save his grandmother’s life during an overnight diabetic episode.
Young Keon who is in fourth grade was spending the night at his grandmother’s house this week when he woke up to a bloody nose. After returning from the bathroom, White said his grandmother had gotten up to change his little brother’s diaper when she appeared disoriented.
“She was trying to talk and she couldn’t talk, she couldn’t talk properly,” he said, “I don’t know, she sounded like a zombie, and I thought she was just sleepy.”
Melanie Robinson, White’s grandmother, said when she got up, she immediately knew something wasn’t right.

“Everything went black, and the only thing I could move was my finger to try to get my grandson’s attention,” she said. “He turned the light on and said, ‘grandma what’s wrong?’ And I couldn’t answer anything.”
White said his grandmother slid off the bed and partially onto the floor when he turned the lights on and tried to figure out what was wrong.
“I was screaming her name, and she wasn’t answering me, so I got her phone and dialed 911,” he said. “I told them my grandma wasn’t answering me and that her eyes was closed.”
White said his grandmother and parents always told him to call 911 if there was an emergency.
