Hungry 5-year-old calls 911 for pizza, thoughtful police deliver


Sanford, Connecticut — A 5-year-old boy who wanted pizza decided to use a direct line, calling 911 in an attempt to satisfy his craving.

The boy ended up getting a lesson from police on the proper use of the emergency phone line … as well as a pizza delivered by three officers.

The Sanford Police Department detailed the unusual call in a post on its Facebook page.

After getting the 911 call, the officers went to the home and were met by the boy and his older sister, who told them they were OK. The sister told officers her brother had used the phone without her knowledge.

The officers took it in stride, first letting the boy know he shouldn’t use 911 to order a pizza … and then going out getting him a large pie and bringing it back to his house.
