MORRIS HEIGHTS - A Bronx toddler is being credited tonight with saving the life of his mother after she began to have a seizure.

On Wednesday, Asha Diaz was home alone with her 3-year-old son, Omas, when she began to have a seizure. Omas ran up a flight of stairs to his grandmother's apartment, who called the ambulance.

Diaz says she suffers from a neurological condition and suffers seizures every couple of months. She has since been released from the hospital.
