In front of the girl, a horror scene: her father and mother lost consciousness when they had just used a faulty generator. The device was all the more necessary since last week, the Northeast of the United States was hit by a violent storm: many homes in Brockton (Masschussets) were deprived of electricity. The Brandão family was forced to borrow a generator. The device did not function as desired and began to emit a poisonous and odorless gas: carbon monoxide.
” I heard my father scream “
The events took place on the night of 28 October. Jayline claims to have been woken up by screaming. The little girl runs to her parents’ room: “I heard my father scream and I saw my mother lose consciousness”, explained the young American, questioned by Boston 000 News . The father, in fact, remains conscious, but then unable to call for help. Jayline said he grabbed his father’s phone. In a cool gesture, she activated the device’s facial recognition and placed the phone in front of her father’s face, before dialing the emergency number.
The girl then warns the emergency services, and leaves the house to seek help from the neighborhood, taking with her her little sister, just 7 years old. Her family was finally rescued in time. “I’m so proud of her,” Jayline’s mother, Marcelina Brandão, testified after the accident. She was so smart. (…) I wouldn’t be here if she hadn’t been home. . “
In France, carbon monoxide poisoning is regular: nearly 3 incidents of this type are recorded each year.
