November 09, 1995|By Shanon D. Murray | Shanon D. Murray,SUN STAFF

An Elkridge boy will be honored today for calling Howard County's 911 center to request help for his grandmother as she suffered from chest pains last week.

Kevin Eckart, 4, will meet dispatcher Connie Ludvigsen, who answered his telephone call and instructed him.

Kevin was consoling his younger sister as he told Ms. Ludvigsen his address and about his grandmother's chest pains. The woman was taken to St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore for a checkup. She will attend her grandson's ceremony.

The boy will be honored at the Communications Center in the George Howard county building in Ellicott City.
