Illinois boy honored for life-saving 911 call
NORMAL (AP) — A 9-year-old central Illinois boy has been recognized as a local hero for a 911 call that saved the life of someone he loved.
The Pantagraph newspaper in Bloomington reports that (http://bit.ly/SxroyO ) firefighters in Normal honored Ryan Rice Friday for the call that saved his dad, 48-year-old David Rice.
Ryan was 8 back in May when his father collapsed to the floor of their home. The boy called his mother, Cheryl Rice, who was out of town. She told him he needed to call 911. He was scared but she reminded him they'd practiced calling in emergencies.
