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.
