Sup Travellers?! A former police dispatcher recently posted an amazing story about a domestic violence call that took a surprising turn. The story has since gone viral and rightly so. 


At first, the dispatcher thought a call from a woman wanting to “order pizza” was just a prank, like any dispatcher would. But it was far from a phony phone call; it was a cry for help, disguised in the most brilliant way. The dispatcher typed out the entire exchange that 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.

After they hung up, an officer arrived at the woman’s home and found that the woman was badly beaten. Her drunk boyfriend was arrested for domestic violence. 

It's a good thing that the dispatcher wasn't an A-hole. Some may have just hung up the phone thinking that it was a prank call but luckily, this particular dispatcher stayed with the call, saving the woman from a terrible situation. Hats off!! Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
