Babysitter proves to be lifesaver

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (WMC) – A 12-year-old Tennessee babysitter saved a choking 4-year-old after thinking quickly rather than panicking.

Morgan Brownlee is Lily Milsom’s personal hero. The teen saved her life Saturday night. Brownlee babysat Lily and her brother Devin.

“I had made them dinner lily she had a bad cough,” said Brownlee.

Brownlee says Lily started eating and then started coughing. Lily’s face became red, and she stopped coughing.

“So I knew that she had stopped breathing,” said Brownlee. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
