Cops honor Tyngsboro girl, 5, who saved mom

Aubrey Keplin's quick action saved her mom and gained her the kind of fame that lasts a lifetime.


And she's only 5.

The Tyngsboro girl was awarded the first Citizen Safety Award by the Massachusetts Safety Officers League at the State House yesterday, after having helped rescue her mother from beneath the family's car on an icy day in March.

``There is not a more deserving person in the entire commonwealth of Massachusetts than this little girl,'' said Lowell police officer Paul Corcoran.

On March 6, Aubrey's mother Jeanne Keplin, 38, slipped on the family's icy driveway in Tyngsboro and broke her leg, which was pinned under the vehicle from the fall.

On her mother's instruction, Aubrey unlocked her own child safety seat belt and climbed out of the car. Keplin threw the house keys to Aubrey, who unlocked the front door to their house and retrieved a phone for her mother to call 911.

``The whole driveway was a complete sheet of ice, and if Aubrey wasn't able to get out of her child seat, (Jeanne) could have been out there for a long time and maybe could have frozen,'' said Tyngsboro police officer Michael Miceli, who was the first police officer on the scene.

The league, comprised of local and state police officers, teaches children and parents about safety.

Kids are smart these days. I had a call last night, girl 4 y/o called 911 her mom wasnt feeling good. (diabetic reaction) Second time I've been there for that. You got to give credit to the young kids who pick up the phone and know how to dial 911.

They should teach all kids that age how to dial 911. It's great for the kids that know who to do it. The kids that have called when I dispatch are great, they know what to say and the info you need.
