A 13-year-old boy was recognized Monday night for saving his unresponsive mother inside the family’s home on March 29.
Noah Sohm received the 911 Kid Hero Award from the North Texas Central Council of Governments during a ceremony at the Cowboy Capital Walk of Fame.
911 Dispatcher Supervisor Kristi Metsgar answered Noah’s emergency call for help and praised his actions.
“He stated that his mother was sleeping and was not able to wake her up,” Metsgar said. “He told dispatch that she is a type I diabetic and was not responding to the sugary drink he gave her. He then proceeded to give dispatch the readings off her insulin pump. I was impressed by how well he answered all the questions I asked him. Noah remained very calm and I am extremely impressed by his bravery throughout the entire call.”
Noah and his parents, Chris and Janette Sohm, attended the ceremony along with city and state officials.
State Representative Dr. J.D. Sheffield called Noah’s actions “incredible” and said he managed to remain calm in a situation where many adults would have panicked.
“All of Stephenville is proud of you,” Sheffield said.
