13-year-old's quick thinking, kept her safe during break-in
13-year-old's quick thinking credited for keeping her safe during break-in
1:57 AM, Dec. 17, 2011
Chloe Symington curled up beside her bed, whispering softly into her cell phone.
"He's in my room," the 13-year-old told the 911 dispatcher.
Then the line went silent.
On Thursday afternoon, two men broke into the Symington house in Harrison Township, ransacking the rooms in search of valuables. Chloe, home sick from school, sat motionless among things on the floor, trying not to breathe. A man walked in, wearing a black cap and a jacket. He crossed the carpet, stopping some 3 feet to Chloe's right. He looked around, then left, yelling that the coast was clear -- no one was home.

Here is another article including the 911 call and video:
Chilling 911 call records moment girl, 13, phoned police from under bed as armed gunmen ransacked her home
When thieves began ransacking her home, 13-year-old Chloe Symington remembered what her father always said: ‘Think now, react or panic later.’
It is advice that saved the Detroit, Michigan girl from harm after two men broke into her home when she was off school feeling ill.
Aware the thieves did not know she was in the house, the teenager grabbed her cat and hid in her room before immediately calling police

Thank goodness she is safe. FWIW...the picture of the 2nd intruder has Sanpaku eyes.Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy jewelry and lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion, Every Day Is Special.

I remember another case similar to this, and the young lady was under the bed, and told 911 that they were coming in her room, she was also under the bed and the 911 operator kept talking to her, my first thought was the perp is going to find her b/c he heard the voice on the phone. Luckily that didn't happen, but I guess all cell phones don't have a physical address attached to the owner? I'm not sure how that works, but when I recently had to make a call to 911 on my trc=fone dispatch knew immediately what my address was. Enlighten me please, I'm a cell phone Mcnummy.Anything worth dewing, is worth dewing well!
