He saved his mommy’s life – and he’s just 5 years old.

Little Tahlique Garay’s pregnant mother collapsed and fell to the floor of her Queens bedroom, out cold.

The precocious kindergarten graduate didn’t panic, instead calmly following what Jennifer Garay had told him to do if she ever got sick: Call 911.

“My mommy, um, passed out a little bit,” Tahlique told the emergency operator last Wednesday afternoon, giving her the family’s Jamaica address.

“How old are you?” the 911 dispatcher asked incredulously.

“Five years old,” Tahlique said matter-of-factly.

Tahlique, who turned slightly bashful when surrounded by the firefighters and media Wednesday, beamed as he held up his Junior Paramedic plaque and tried on his new FDNY jacket.
