PRAIRIE GROVE, Ark. (KFTA)–A touch of a button is all it took for one Prairie Grove teacher to save her student’s life.
Brandy Carte, a special education teacher at Prairie Grove Elementary, credits her live saving technique to something she holds right in the palm of her hand–her phone.
“If we would have lost her, I’m not sure we would’ve… it would be hard to come back,” she said with tears in her eyes.
Carte said she and 7-year-old Kinsley have an unexplainable connection.
She said, “We were attached to her from the moment she started coming here. There was just something about her that, you know we just love her. Can’t help it.”
But it was one day, Kinsley’s birthday, that could have changed everything.
Carte recalls, “Kinsley began having a really strong seizure where her eyes rolled back and she turned purple and gray and yellow colors.”
