KALISPELL, Mont. -

Flathead emergency crews honored a local nine year old hero in Kalispell who made a call that may have saved his mother’s life.

For his actions, emergency responders hosted a special ceremony for the boy and awarded him a metal of honor.

NBC Montana told you about K.C. Nouque in October, after his mother had an allergic reaction to medication she was taking.

K.C. says he watched in horror as his mother collapsed, and went into shock, but instead of panicking, he kept a cool head, called his dad, and then called 911.

"It would be difficult for not just his age, but anyone of any age group with a loved one in that much distress," said Kalispell Police officer Cory Clarke, who attended the award ceremony. "He possibly saved his mother's life from what could have been a deadly incident of anaphylactic shock."

"I'm pretty excited, pretty happy that I actually got a metal,” said Nouque. “I've wanted one my whole entire life."
