We turn to a startling home invasion and a 13-year-old girl whose quick thinking saved her and her scissor it. It was all caught on 911 tape and gio Benitez has the story. There's men trying to break into our house and we are home alone. Reporter: Horror and heroism. This is the incredible 911 call made by 13-year-old kylie as she and her 8-year-old sister found themselves home alone with two alleged intruders. They were banging at the door. Which door? At my front door. Reporter: Hiding in their bedroom closets as Robert Paul and Amy hoeltsz kicked in the door of their home and started ransacking it. They're now in the house. Okay, where are they at, upstairs? Yeah. I was having a hard time breathing because I was crying so much. Reporter: Kylee said she broke down but managed to keep calm while on the phone with 911 if how many does it sound like, can you tell? Two. Okay. Can you hear them talking? Yeah. I knew my sister was in the enclosest and if he catches me he's going to catch her too so I had to think of her, not just myself. And so that's probably what made me keep my calm. Reporter: Incredibly both Kylee and Audrey remained hidden when police arrived just as the suspects were throwing arrested on burglary, theft and drug charges and have yet to enter a plea. They went and trashed my bedroom. I'm so proud of my oldest and even my young effort for what they did. Reporter: As for little Audrey, she's thankful for the quick thinking of her big sister. I'm grateful that she saved me and that the robbers did not turn around. Oh, we're thankful too. The two suspects are behind bars and stood no chance against Kylee who said she learned how to handle the situation from her grandpa, parents and school.
