A neighbor to the home on 119th and Eggleston was walking past the home when he heard the woman screaming for help. The neighbor yelled back to see if the unidentified woman was alone inside the abandoned home, she was. This is when the neighbor sprung into action and dialed 911.

Imagine being out for a walk in your neighborhood and hearing a terrifying scream for "help." What would you do, would you physically rush to the aid of this person? Would you ignore the cries for help? Or would you do what this gentleman did, and react with a call to 911.
