    Young heroes

    BERLIN — Parent Josh Badger hadn’t felt completely well for several days, but never expected to be crediting his three elementary school aged children with the 9-1-1 phone call that may have saved his life.

    Badger began to feel acutely ill after a family outing to a local restaurant on March 23. The first signs of trouble were difficulty with his vision, namely, seeing multiples of objects. After arriving home his children helped him remove his coat and boots and sit down. Minutes later, Badger reports he had a seizure, striking his head on the family piano and landing unconscious on the floor.

    Badger’s three children, Cole, 11, Clay, 10, and Chelsea, 8, all students at Berlin Elementary, took immediate action.

    “I was in the kitchen and heard someone fall,” Cole Badger said. “And then I saw Chelsea pointing to our dad.”

    What the children didn’t realize was that several days of illness had resulted in their father’s dehydration and inability to keep down his anti-seizure medication, and that his body no longer contained the therapeutic medication level necessary to prevent seizures.

    It was Clay Badger who placed the potentially life-saving 911 phone call to Emergency Medical Services. “I told them that my dad had a seizure, then I told them where we lived,” Clay Badger said.

    As Clay Badger remained on the line and answered a series of questions from the emergency dispatcher, Cole Badger put the family’s dogs in another room and Chelsea Badger stayed near her father. For several minutes, until the arrival of the ambulance, the three took turns tending to their father, who remained unconscious. Clay Badger went outside to flag down emergency responders.

    Josh Badger awoke during his ambulance ride to the hospital and is on track to make a full recovery.

    “I knew it would eventually happen,” he said of having a seizure with his children present. “We had a plan for what to do in the event that we were in the car, but not for this.”

    “They are my heroes,” Josh Badger said of his children during an interview from the Berlin School. “They are amazing. I can never repay them enough.”
