Keith Weisinger was working as a 911 dispatcher one night when he got a call he would never forget. He shared his story on an Ask Reddit thread asking 911 operators what was their most memorable call.
Keith’s story starts with a woman who called to order a “pizza”, but it turned out she was, in fact, calling about something very serious.
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.
“As we dispatch the call, I check the history at the address, and see there are multiple previous domestic violence calls. The officer arrives and finds a couple, female was kind of banged up, and boyfriend was drunk. Officer arrests him after she explains that the boyfriend had been beating her for a while. I thought she was pretty clever to use that trick. Definitely one of the most memorable calls.”
Keith said the call occurred over 10 years ago. He felt relieved that there was an officer close by who could respond, although he said he never found out what happened to the woman after she called.
Keith could at least rest assured that the woman was safe that night thanks to his quick thinking! What a BRILLIANT woman.
