12-Year-Old Girl Calls 911 During Home Invasion

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

When Mackenzie Hughes, 12, of Troutdale, Oregon, was home alone on Monday, she heard someone knocking on the door.

She didn't answer. But when Mackenzie heard someone try to open the door, she called 911 from a phone in her bedroom. When the burglars entered her bedroom, she hid under the covers, crying, while still on the line with the 911 operator.

Listen to the chilling 911 tape here:

Thankfully, the burglars heard sirens and got scared off. The three suspects were later taken into custody.

In Oregon it’s legal for 12 year olds to babysit, so yeah, I’d let my 12 year-old stay home alone. No need to be so paranoid. This could have just as easily happened to a 22 year-old or a 32 year-old or a 62 year-old. The girl took the right steps - yeah it’s a scary situation, but would an adult have handled it any differently?

This is not the norm, and the chances of this actually happening are miniscule. Besides, what is the big feal? The girl reacted to the situation properly, just as it should be expected.

I was shocked to see this in Oregon. I am planning on moving my family there to escape the crime riddled streets of SoCal. Oregon being a predominantly white state has much lower crime, especially gang related and is quite beautiful. So lo and behold the 3 suspects here are hispanic… big surprise. Don’t tell me they’re taking over there too. Is nowhere safe?

No I would not leave a child under the age of 16 home alone because what if things had gone differntly children are to imature to deal with things appropriatly like she said that he knew she was there what if he had pulled back the blanket would she have known how to try to fight back??? why would you go to your own room instead of where there is a lock on the door with the phone? Children don’t think about these things.

In relevant reports, the Wayans brothers need to cast Tiger woods in their subsequent film but they cannot determine if the title really should be White Chicks eleven or 12 ?
