When 10-year-old Anthony Plunkett’s father went into a seizure, he knew to call 9-1-1 right away. As his father suffered from a medical emergency, Anthony told the 9-1-1 operator what was happening and looked after his younger sister while emergency responders and his mother were en route. 

“For a 10-year-old to do something like that to me is something that is-is extraordinary. Under a situation such as that it — sometimes it’s hard for an adult to even think and have a clear sound mind and clear actions to do something of this,” Police Chief Keith Traylor said. 

“Anthony, take a look around and see what you see. Everybody’s very proud of you,” said Mayor Debra Davison. 

Chief Traylor presented Plunkett with a jersey that will be signed by J.J. Watt and tickets to a Houston Astros game. Davison presented Plunkett with a Citizenship Award “in recognition for [his] courageous actions.” 

Everybody’s very proud of you,” said Mayor Debra Davison.
