DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A Dorchester County mother says she is counting her blessings after suffering a seizure in her home.

Last month, Danielle McCray collapsed onto the floor of the family room of her Ladson home.  Her daughters -- ages 4 and 6 -- summoned help by calling 911.

"I went back in my room and then I came back out and then I called 911 and they came to get her," 6-year-old Damari says.

Damari calmly spoke with the 911 dispatcher, informing her of their home address and Danielle's condition.

Four-year-old Mackenzie sang a lullaby to Danielle as they awaited emergency responders.

"I'm always brave," Damari says.  She adds that she learned to dial 911 in emergency situations at school.

Danielle spent two days recovering in the hospital after her seizure, but says she's relieved her daughters were by her side during her medical emergency.

"Who knows what would have happened if I hit my head on something, how long I would've been here," she says.
