Earlier this week The Wireless Foundation held its annual VITA awards dinner, where it honors people from around the country who have used wireless in a heroic fashion.
One of this year’s winners is four-year-old Kyle Sparks, who was able to save his mother when she became ill and lost consciousness, by using his mother’s cell phone to call his dad. He’d memorized his dad’s number, made the call and then let the emergency responders into his house when they showed up just a few moments later.
Part of the event’s festivities continue the next day when the award winners meet some of their federally-elected officials. Kyle is from the Virginia Beach, VA area, and a local TV station covered his story and meeting with U.S. Senator Mark Warner.
