12-Year-Old Girl Keeps Home Safe

Mackenzie Hughes was just your average Oregon 12-year-old girl. Home alone after school on Monday, Mackenzie remained cool under pressure when she realized that someone was trying to enter her home.

The twelve-year-old quickly dialed 911, and then hid in the back of her house. After Mackenzie talked very quietly to the dispatcher, the police arrived and nabbed three burglars. Throughout the terrifying ordeal, Mackenzie remained calm, and came out the other side a hero.
