A teenage boy from Michigan has been hailed a hero for his courageous actions amidst a night of terror.
A night that began as quiet and unassuming turned into a scene straight out of a horror movie for James Persyn III, 14, and his younger siblings. James was home alone with his 11-year-old sister and 2-year-old brother while their father ran out for a quick errand to pick up his fiancee, just a couple miles away.
Out of nowhere, the children heard a terrified voice and frantic banging on the front door. Her voice was, like, she was going to die if I didnt open that door, James said.
