Town of Pike Road Honors Local 7-Year-Old Hero

Pike Road Mayor Gordon Stone presented 7-year-old Egypt Henry with a proclamation at the city council meeting, honoring her for her bravery and quick response in dialing 9-1-1 to save her mother who had collapsed in front of her.

In addition to the proclamation, a representative from the Alabama 911 board also presented Egypt with a gift, a mini red telephone, which symbolized the first ever 9-1-1 call that was ever made in the U.S. which was in Haleyville, Alabama.

The mini telephone that was given to Egypt was made out of LEGOs and was the color of the first phone that successfully made a 9-1-1 call 54 years ago.
