11-Year-Old Calls 911 from Under Bed As Intruders Break into His House (Video)

By Monica Bielanko |

Like a scene from a movie the little boy whispers to the operator as burglars roam around his home.

It could easily be the plot of a movie: Dad leaves 11-year-old home alone for a few minutes while he goes to pick up dinner.

Within five minutes boy sees people trying to break a window and get inside. Quick-thinking boy grabs dog and phone, runs to his room and calls dad. Dad tells him to hide and call 911.

Boy follows instructions and the call you’re about to hear takes place. My only question to you: don’t you think the operator is a bit of an ass at first? Like, come on! Take the kid seriously!

In the video below NBC’s Thanh Truong tells the story of the 11-year-old whose quick thinking may have saved his life.

    I think the dispatchers were completely innapropriate and would have been held responsible if anything had happened to that little boy while they sat and questioned whether or not he was telling the truth. Sad. Also wondering why the dad left him home alone. I know most 11 year olds are capable of caring for themselves but he has one child, went to pick up dinner, and couldn’t let his son tag along? Even with 3 kids I doubt I would let any stay home alone while I run to get dinner. I guess we will see when the time comes.
