If you let 10-year-old Nora Silva tell it, it was all pretty simple.

“We were coming back from a lacrosse game and we're in the car and my mom had an allergic reaction,” she said. “When we stopped, she took both of her EpiPens, then I called 911. She was about to fall asleep and I kept her awake and then a cop came and then the ambulance came. After that, my dad picked me up and I went home.”
