Hear the complete 911 call now.
A 7-year-old boy locked himself and his sister in the bathroom during a home invasion and called 911 yesterday morning, reports the Whittier Daily News.
Here is the amazing audio.
(Warning: The kid is highly distressed -- some of the moms here found it hard to listen to.)
The boy, Carlos, even told the 911 operator to "send soldiers."
The suspects forced the bathroom open and took the phone away from the child. But they left when they found out he had called for help. No one was injured.
"If not for the brave and educated actions of the 7-year-old boy, this might have ended tragically," said Capt. Pat Maxwell.
What a brave little boy!
