Real Hero: Dee Maynard

The lives of two complete strangers were about to collide. Someone had broken in to Linda Moreno’s quiet home, and was attacking her. That's when her daughter Danielle dialed 911.

Dee Maynard answered the call in the 911 center and told Danielle to stay quiet. But heroically, Danielle tried to save her mother. The call ended in silence. Danielle died in a heroic effort to save her mother. Dee is a stranger to the rest of the family, but is still willing to take that next call that may again connect complete strangers.
