Nineteen-year-old Aaron Arias and seventeen-year-old Jamal Harris are being hailed as heroes for making a 911 call that may have saved a woman's life. CNN's Michaela Pereira reports.
While stopped at a traffic light two weeks ago, the Dallas teens witnessed a woman mouthing ‘help me’ from the backseat of the car beside them.
For almost 12 minutes, Arias stayed on the phone and in pursuit of the suspect.
The two brave teens followed the suspect until the 25-year-old woman was finally rescued by police.
Police say the predator struck the young woman on the head as she left a downtown office building and forced her into the car at gunpoint. She told police she feared she would have been raped and murdered if no one came to her rescue.
Pereira asked the teenagers about how they foiled a kidnapping in progress by reading lips.
“I looked at the car next to me and I saw a woman in the back seat. But, I mean, the reason that I honestly looked was because she was pretty attractive,” Harris said. “As I was trying to explain it to Aaron, I was like, look at her, you know, this lady’s pretty beautiful. And I could tell by her facial expressions on what she was trying to tell me, it was very serious. And I paid closer attention. And I could see her mouthing the words, ‘help me.’”
