KINGSPORT — When one local mother was in a medical emergency she found a hero in an unlikely place, her daughter.

Courtney Donaghy is a 9-year-old girl who saved her mom’s life. The family lives in the Arcadia community of Sullivan County.  

“If Courtney hadn’t made the phone call when she did or found me, I could have slipped into a coma,” said her mother, Heather Donaghy . 

Heather had been feeling ill for a few days. On the day of July 23, she was feeling especially ill and decided to go lie down.
