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!

What bothers me is that this woman is bothering him about his name and age, instead of finding out what’s going on.

I think it’s to calm him down

@Espen it’s to find out if they could give them the address, because it takes some time for the trace to give you the exact location. I mean with cellphones it might be easier with 3g gps, but if you’re 911 it will take some time to trace and find a location about 2-3 minutes.

She is only trying to keep him on the line to get him to stay where he is and monitor what is going on, in addition to trying to keep him calm. Contrary to what the movies tell us, it does NOT take 2-3 min to trace a call. It is almost immediate after the connection is made. They do that in the movies to add suspence.

This was hard to listen to. I’m glad the family survived this horrible ordeal.

@Mike I’m not quite sure I understand what your saying

Sports activities game enthusiasts are usually concerned in regards to the video game footwear. an excellent footwear is actually rather necessary for a good sportsman.
