Miranda Monarrez and her grandmother, Consuela, were picking apricots when suddenly the 7-year-old noticed something was terribly wrong.

“I knew she was in trouble because she looked at me and one eye was half closed and the other was wide open and she was looking left the whole time,” Miranda said.

Instead of panicking, Miranda went for help.

“Miranda comes running into the house… ‘Antie, Antie, come. My grandmother.  Something is wrong with her’… so I dialed 911 instantly,” aunt Mayde Monarrez said.

The Monarrez’s family said Consuela has already made improvements in her recovery.
