Doyin Oladipupo, a 15-year-old in San Diego, California, tells Anderson Cooper about the tense moments hiding in her mother's closet while burglars were in her home. She had to communicate with the 911 dispatcher by tapping the phone so she wouldn't be found. Her mother, Adebisi Jinadu, says thinking about what could have happened is extremely frightening, and she's thankful her daughter was able to stay calm during a scary situation.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
