A 12-year-old Lenoir County boy is credited for staying calm and calling 911 after his older brother cracked open his head Tuesday in an accident.
Trey Turner was lifting weights, training for football, when a bar fell across his forehead. His younger brother Zachary was the only other person home.
Zachary was able to calm his own fears and listened to 911 operators as they told him exactly what to do. The boy grabbed a towel and applied pressure so his older brother did not lose any more blood.
Trey received multiple stitches at the hospital and is going to be okay. From now on he says he'll weight train only with a spotter.
The boys' mother says Zach is a hero for how well he handled the situation.
