In Ohio, the daughter of a victim of violence 'ordered pizza' by 911: she was understood and sent by the police
According to police, the daughter of a victim of domestic violence in Ohio helped police arrest a suspected abuser by calling 911, pretending to order pizza.
The boyfriend of 56-year-old woman Simon Lopez burst into a family apartment in Oregon, Ohio, and began to argue with the mistress. She later told the police that he was screaming and started beating her, which caused the woman to hit the wall.
Keeping the offender in ignorance, the 38-year-old daughter of a woman called the police. On the record of the call received by WTVG, you can hear her telling the dispatcher: "I would like to order pizza."
On the subject: 911 call rules that can save lives
“Did you call 911 to order pizza?” The dispatcher asks.
“Yeah, yes,” she replies.
“This is the wrong number to call pizza,” the manager says.
The daughter tells him: "You do not understand me." At that moment, the dispatcher seems to have guessed. He asks her apartment number and whether she needs medical attention.
“No,” she continues. “With pepperoni.”
Then you hear the dispatcher advising the officers to turn off the signal lights and sirens when they arrive at the place where the call came from.
Officers arrived at the apartment where the suspect was arrested. He is accused of domestic violence.
Oregon Police Chief Michael Navarre praised the dispatcher’s response, noting that others “could hang up.”
“He coped with the challenge, and the story had a happy ending,” Navarra said.
As wrote earlier ForumDaily The message on social networks says: “If you need to call the 911 service, but you’re afraid, because there’s a person who is near you, dial this number and ask for pepperoni pizza. They will ask if you know that you are calling 911? Say yes and keep pretending to order. Dispatchers are trained to ask specific questions, with unambiguous yes or no answers. Do not hang up!"
