(KGUN/CNN) -- A two-year-old is being hailed a hero for saving his mother's life. But it wasn't a call to 911 that helped save the day, the toddler tapped into his mother's iPhone and used her Facetime app to contact help.

Panic started to set in when Laura Toone said she desperately needed paramedics but couldn't dial 911.

"I begged me daughters to call 911 and they're four and they were quite afraid to even touch the phone because it was covered in my own blood from me trying to call 911," says Laura Toone.

Toone says a foster dog she cared for attacked one of her own dogs, and when she tried to break it up, the dog bit part of her finger almost clean off.

She continued to lose blood and right when she thought she was going to pass out, "Here comes my son from the kitchen bringing me our dish towel and he wiped off the blood himself and proceeded to call my friend on Facetime."

Two-year-old Bentley didn't know how to call 911, but he knew how to Facetime. In fact, he Facetimes Laura's friend Connie Guerrero so often, she usually just ignores it.

"Something inside of me just told me that I needed to answer this Facetime. All I could see was his little forehead and I said, 'Hi Bentley,' and it was quiet for a little bit and then I hear Laura screaming."

From there, help was called, and Bentley even unlocked the door for firefighters -- and now Laura is so thankful for her little hero.
