A child dials 911 seeking assistance from police officer. The reason why had me in tears
Some parents train their kids to dial the police whenever they need immediate assistance, or their life is put in danger. However, a kid called the police to solve a different kind of problem.
A 4-year-old was having a ‘severe’ problem, and his parents weren’t around at that time to help him solve the problem. So what did he do? He called 911 for immediate assistance, like he was trained to do. That was the only phone number he knew.
The answering operator started asking the usual questions. After a short conversation the operator knew what the kid needed help with, and it had everyone in tears.
Below you can find the full conversation they had on the phone. It had me in tears, especially when his mom came at the end.
