Kirby Vaughn of Bridgton is a hero in his grandmother’s eyes, as well as the doctors and nurses at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

The alert 8-year-old saved his grandmother’s life while visiting her during school vacation.

The son of Alexa Baumgardner and Darrell Vaughn, Kirby called 9-1-1 when his grandmother, a resident of Harrison, passed out on the floor. She was transported to the hospital in serious condition.

“Kirby had to explain to the doctors and nurses what had happened since his grandmother was not conscious enough to tell them,” Alexa said.

Kirby was recently presented an award by the CMMC medical staff that treated his grandmother, who is now healing at home and, thanks to Kirby, no longer in a serious life-threatening condition.
