Twelve-year-old boy says police dispatcher helped save his life
A Port Arthur police dispatcher is calling a 12-year-old boy courageous for making a 911 call that saved him and help catch burglars.
Deion Murdock was at home alone when he heard noises outside his house last week.
Deion did what he and his mother had talked about and called 911.
The dispatcher told him to hide inside a bedroom in the house until police officers arrived.
When police arrived, they saw two men leaving the house.
Police tracked the two suspects down with the help of K-9s, and they were arrested.
Deion says the dispatcher on the other end of the phone helped him stay safe until police got there.
