Woman Dials 911 To Order Pizza To Save Herself

Woman Dials 911 To Order Pizza To Save Herself

At some point in their lifetime, 25% of all women will undergo some form of domestic violence.

A former police dispatcher recently posted his amazing story to Reddit.

At first, he thought the call was some kind of prank, like most people would.

He was quick to realize the call was far from a joke; it was actually a plea for help. This is the entire exchange he had with the caller:

Dispatcher: 911, where is your emergency?
Caller: 123 Main St.
Dispatcher: Ok, what’s going on there?
Caller: I’d like to order a pizza for delivery. (oh great, another prank call).
Dispatcher: Ma’am, you’ve reached 911.
Caller: Yeah, I know. Can I have a large with half pepperoni, half mushroom and peppers?
Dispatcher: Ummm…. I’m sorry, you know you’ve called 911 right?
Caller: Yeah, do you know how long it will be?
Dispatcher: Ok, Ma’am, is everything ok over there? Do you have an emergency?
Caller: Yes, I do.
Dispatcher: And you can’t talk about it because there’s someone in the room with you? (moment of realization)
Caller: Yes, that’s correct. Do you know how long it will be?
Dispatcher: I have an officer about a mile from your location. Are there any weapons in your house?
Caller: Nope.
Dispatcher: Can you stay on the phone with me?
Caller: Nope. See you soon, thanks.

BuzzFeed News spoke to the former 911 dispatcher who recounted the story of a woman who called to order a “pizza” but was in fact calling about domestic violence.

I’m so thankful Keith stayed on the line with her and didn’t hand up, thinking her call was a joke. What an incredibly brilliant woman!

Don’t for get to SHARE this amazing story. It could truly save someone in a similar situation.
