Teenage hero

A man broke into a Cedar City Utah home early Wednesday, bound the 
family's 17 year old son with duct tape and went into the parents' 
bedroom.  The father fought back.  While he was fighting with the 
robber, the 17 year old got free of the duct tape, got a 6 inch hunting 
knife from under his bed, and stabbed the robber 5 times.  The robber 
got out of the house only to collapse about 100 feet from the home. 
Paramedics came and tried to revive the robber.  Thankfully they failed. 
  The robber was pronounced dead at Valley View Medical Center in Cedar 

Iron County Sheriff Mark Gower said the Iron County Attorney's office 
wouldn't prosecute the 17 year old.  Gower said "We feel pretty 
confident it was justified."
