A hungry five-year-old boy dialed emergency respondents in the United States and got pizza personally delivered to his home by cops.
The boy from Florida dialed 911 earlier this month after he was hungry and did not know how to order a pizza.
Sanford Police Department shared the story on their Facebook page:
“Officers Morales, Mejia, and Hernandez responded to a home on Key Haven Dr., for a well-being check on a 911 call made by a juvenile. While officers were on their way, dispatch informed them that the child told them he was hungry and wanted to order pizza. After arriving on scene, officers met the young boy and his older sister. She told officers they were fine and her brother had grabbed the phone without her knowledge. Officers used it as an opportunity to teach about the proper use of 911, then went and bought a large box of pizza and personally delivered it.”
Many netizens were moved by the kind-hearted gesture of the cops.
One comment read: “Sweet, Very Kind, You mostly always hear bad Media, hearing this is wonderful, uplifting thanks.”
An estimated 240 million calls are made to 911 in the US every year, according to the National Emergency Number Association. However, not all 911 calls are related to emergencies.
In October 2018, thousands of people dialled 911 to complain about a YouTube outage.
