RIDGEWOOD, N.J. (FoxNews.com) –  A quick-thinking 5-year-old New Jersey girl calmly dialed 911 when her mother began choking on a chip.

But according to FoxNews.com, she thought it was her father who would be saving the day.

“Daddy, mommy’s choking,” Chloe Olson told the 911 dispatcher Tuesday in the town of Ridgewood.

After opening the front door at the dispatcher’s request, she ended her call with, “Love you, bye.”

Chloe’s mom, Kerry Olson, had stopped choking by the time rescue units arrived. But police tell WCBS-TV in New York Chloe may still receive special recognition for her impressive actions.

Her parents say police and fire officials also deserve credit — for introducing students to a catchy jingle telling them, “Don’t be scared, pick up the phone and dial 911.”
