Albany -- Three-year-old Jordan Kiara Jackson of Albany was honored Friday by city officials for calling 9-1-1 when she could not wake up her mother.

Jordan was unable to wake up her mother, while alone in the house she did what she was taught: dialed 9-1-1.

Jordan remained calm on the phone with operator Sheila Fairbanks until police and emergency workers took over. Jordan's mother says she is proud of her daughter's actions.

"I am very proud of her, on that day that she called 9-1-1, I could not wake up," said her Mother Madalyn Jackson. "I guess I had passed out or was unconscious, and she dialed 9-1-1 like I had been teaching her".

Albany Mayor Dr. Willie Adams was there to proclaim Friday as Jordan Kiara Jackson day in the city of Albany.
