Did you guys see this story? about the seven year old little boy in Norwalk California who saved his family from gunman in a home invasion? According to the news story:
According to authorities, two men entered Carlos’ home in the Los Angeles suburb of Norwalk after his 6-year-old sister had retrieved her lunch pail from the family car, leaving the front door open.
The men held handguns and a third stood outside as a lookout. As they ordered Carlos’ family to the ground, the boy grabbed his sister and fled to a bathroom with a telephone, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Steve Kenny told AOL News.
Once in the bathroom, the boy called 911, described very clearly what happened, then said:
“There’s some guys, they’re going to kill my mom and my dad, can you come please? Can you come really fast, please, please?” Carlos begged. “They come, they ring the door and they have guns. They shoot my mom and dad. Can you come really fast. Bring the cops … a lot of them … and bring soldiers, too.”
…the gunman broke down the door to the bathroom where the children were hiding and grabbed the phone from Carlos. Screams can be heard on a 911 tape as the suspects asked the boy who he had been calling. “911,” Carlos calmly answered. The men fled before deputies arrived.
What a smart little boy! Hard to believe he’s only seven! I hope I could be that calm and quick-thinking in an emergency.
