As a pair of Grayson County young men were honored on Monday, authorities released audio of the 911 call made by 5 year old Nathan Hood. Portions of the call have been omitted to protect the privacy of the family. Nathan and his brother, 4 year old Connor Hood were home when their mother suffered from a seizure earlier this month.

    The dispatcher did fine - GC Resident is just looking for some reason to complain. I have 4 kids - two of them went to speech therapy at the age of 5. There is no way to train someone to understand every child. Kids just make up words. Two things I did notice - the little boy knew what to do, and he has been taught to say "Yes ma'am"! Wasn't that adorable hearing him say yes Ma'am!?

    WOW! This young man is awesome! I think it is awesome that he knew to call 911! Everyone did a great job handling this call . . .That dispatcher knew how to keep the young man's attention and did a great job trying to understand what he was saying, I often have a hard time understanding what young ones are saying, especially on the phone. WOW!! Nathan is so polite! His parents should be so proud, as I am sure they are. I am proud for them! Way to go!!

    This kid was awesome. I think that the dispatcher did a great job as well. The boy was difficult to understand (to be understood), and she figured out what he was saying. Both of these people helped saved this womans life!

    This little boy did a wonderful job telling the dispatcher all the information she needed and to you Resident of GC this dispatcher had no problem talking to this little boy, she had him repeat things so she would not receive information that was not correct and she did ask them the right questions too, stop commenting back comments on here and just be thankful that these two saved their mothers life

    I just have one question. Why is it that every comment on these are always negative?? The dispatcher obviously did a good job, the kids mother survived. So I'd just like everyone to keep there negative comments to themselves.

    I agree with the comment below. However, Nathan knew what to do; which is amazing.

    Sounds to me like our dispatchers need a little extra training. Working with kids is a difficult task and you have to learn how to talk to them and the right questions to ask. Maybe this will be an example for sending dispatchers to more specialty training.
