Hungry five-year-old boy in Florida called 911 on August 7 last year to report that he would love to have some pizza. And the authorities immediately responded to the emergency.
As a caring police department to its community, the Sanford Police Department actually delivered the pizza and gave the boy a proper emergency call etiquette lesson.
In its Facebook post, the department said the officers received a call from the boy Manny Beshara from Key Haven Drive and told the dispatcher, “I want you to bring me a pizza please.”
The post received 1,200 likes and about 200 comments.
Police said they later met the caller and his older sister, Madonna, for a well-being check. They used this opportunity to teach the child how to properly use 911. The officers then gave him the pizza he requested.
Her older sister said she briefly left her brother for about a moment to get cereals, finding him already on the phone when she returned. “Two seconds later I answered (the phone and it) was the sheriff’s department. I was like, ‘Oh God, what did he do,'” she shared.
On the next day, the caller went to the police station with his mother and delivered pizzas to the officers.
