A former police dispatcher recently posted an amazing story about a domestic violence call; and the story is now going viral.
The former dispatcher, Reddit user Crux1836, recently posted his most memorable call as a 911 dispatcher. He says the call originally seemed like a prank, but as the call played out he realized the woman on the other end of the phone was in grave danger.
Here is the transcript the former dispatcher typed out in his Reddit post:
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?
Dispatcher: Can you stay on the phone with me?
Caller: Nope. See you soon, thanks.
The dispatcher said an officer arrived at the home a short time later, the woman had been beaten up by her drunk boyfriend, who was arrested and booked into jail.
