How brave could the kid really be if he never bothered to figure out the password to his dad's phone?

Edit: wait, can't you call 911 on a cell phone even if it's locked?

Kids, and most people, are not logical in an emergent situation. Your assertion, although logical, does not downplay the fact that the child was doing the best he could to help his parent.

Yes. Seems like it would be a good idea to teach your kids how to call 911 on a locked phone, especially if you're prone to medical emergencies.

It's weird, I thought they all had some kind of "CALL 911" button visible on the lock screen.

Yes. As I recall, it was almost going to be a requirement that all phones allow emergency calls to be placed even when locked and whether or not the phone had an active plan associated with it, but most phone companies put the ability in anyway, so it never officially became a requirement. I know my phone allows for an up to 4 digit emergency number to be dialed even when locked.

Hero? Or burgeoning toxic masculinity? Just like a white male to assume responsibility over everyone's safety.
