Nashua girl credited with saving family from possible carbon monoxide poisoning
NASHUA - A family unaware they were suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning may have been saved by their 11-year-old daughter who made the call to 911.
According to FoxNews25, firefighters found high levels of carbon monoxide at the Northwood Drive home - a problem blamed on a faulty furnace. They say the situation could have been life-threatening if the family had stayed in the home.
The 11-year old is credited with noticing a strange odor and that family members weren't feeling well. She called her father, who told her to call 911.
"Her action most certainly prevented what would have been a family tragedy," fire officials said.
All five family members were taken to the hospital and treated for carbon monoxide exposure.
