10-year-old Sophia Tabors of St. Louis, Mo., is being given credit for helping save her grandfather after realizing that he was having a stroke.
She told CBS affiliate KMOV she devoted her science fair project to the topic of strokes after her other grandfather experienced one.
“My other grandpa had a stroke, and during that stroke I’m like, ‘Well it’d be interesting to find out why strokes happen and what causes them,'” Tabors told KMOV.

Two months after the science fair project, Sophia responded quickly after seeing her grandfather lose grip of a bag of apples.
“He was staring at it and I was trying to ask him if he was OK. … He was saying something but I didn’t get it and his face was droopy on one side,” she told KMOV.
Sophia called 911 after telling her mom what was happening. Dr. Amer Alshekhlee credits her with not only saving her grandpa’s functions, but likely his life.
