In today's random news, a Sarasota fire station awarded this young girl for saving her mother's life...by slapping her face with a pizza. Okay, it didn't really happen like that and she wasn't trying to break the world record in pizza slapping. Her mother was unconscious so 7 year old Rita became worried.
She became concerned when she couldn't wake her mom up, so she took action. "I called 911, but first I slapped her with a piece of pizza." When that pizza didn't wake her mom, she knew she had to get help. The fire chief told the crowd she was very calm when she spoke to the 911 operator.
Rita's quick actions saved her mother's life and while this probably refers her to calling 911, I'm pretending that it was the greasy healing powers of pizza.
