Middleboro: Teen’s 911 call saves mom’s life

A Middleboro teenager calls 911, saving her mother and herself from carbon monoxide poisoning.

The 16-year-old girl made the frantic call after her mother passed out Saturday morning inside her Kelley Dr. home.

Fire-fighters blame the deadly gas build-up on a wood-burning stove in the basement.

Mother and daughter were taken to a hospital for an examination.

Fire officials say the incident should serve as a warning to remind people to install and maintain carbon monoxide detectors on every level of their homes.
