Four-year-old Rowan Rychel has received an award at the Lothian and Borders Police Meritorious awards in Edinburgh.
The toddler was just two-years-old when she dialled 999 after her mum, Francesca, lost consciousness and fell to the floor in September 2011.
Rowan spoke to an emergency operator and said, 'My mummy is sleeping and she won't wake up'.
Police officers arrived at their home in Innerleithen and forced their way in.
Francesca was then taken to hospital for treatment.
An awards ceremony commemorating the bravery of 35 members of the public is being held in Edinburgh.
Lothian and Borders Police are holding the event, which recognises people who have saved someone from danger or helped the police with an arrest.
The police say it is their chance to thank the people who have gone above and beyond all expectations for others.
Two-year-old Rowan Rychel from Innerleithen is among the winners after dialling 999 when her mother lost consciousness and fell to the floor.
Several people who were involved with the rescue of Katie-Lou MacLean, who fell into Eyemouth harbour in June 2012, are also being recognised.
Children from Cumbria were among those awarded for bravery at a charity event in Newcastle.
36 children attended the Brave Hearts Award to be recognised for their courage and each had their own humbling story to tell. Watch the full report here:
