SHOW LOW, AZ - An Alabama teen is credited with helping save the life of his friend who lives more than 1,500 miles away.
Authorities said 17-year-old Blake Robinson of Talladega notified police on April 22 when his friend, a 14-year-old girl from Show Low, Ariz., said via Skype that she'd taken four bottles of oxycontin.
Blake said he searched the Internet for Arizona police.
He said the first agency referred him to 911, which automatically routed to his local Alabama operator.
Blake says he became frustrated but knew time was ticking away and he had to help. Calling the first agency back, Blake said he got a direct number for Show Low police.
Show Low police said rescue crews arrived within minutes and took the 14-year-old to a hospital, where she made a full recovery.
