Deaf Woman Saves Children with New 911 Feature

Due to a relatively unknown 911 alert system, a deaf woman was able to help save the lives of two young children in Georgia. She noticed two kids left alone in a car. She decided to text 911, to alert them.

The police department then released the depiction of their conversation.

The dispatched officer found that the young children had been left in the care of a 15-year-old. Furthermore, police say they were left inside of the car for almost an hour.

No arrests were made, but the Text-to-911 program is being praised as a new way to contact the police. Since it is not yet available nationwide, authorities still advise the public to make voice calls.
