A Protective Parrot

Some people might think Parrot are annoying, but you certainly wouldn’t be saying that about Willie, an 11-month-old parrot that helped save his owner’s two-year-old daughter from choking on a Pop-Tart. Willie did this by mimicking his owner’s (Meghan Howard) voice. Willie would constantly say things like “give me a kiss” or “come here,” but we he needed to say something different, as he saw Meghan’s daughter, Hannah, choking while Meghan was in the bathroom, Willie cried out, “Mama, baby! Mama, baby!” Meghan came rushing back into the room and performed the Heimlich on her daughter to save her life.
