An officer at the emergency dispatch in Arizona was surprised when a boy called 911 seeking a McDonald’s meal for his sister.
According to the call recording, five-year-old Charlie enquired if he had called McDonald’s. When dispatch officer Anthony Bonilla enquired about the nature of the emergency, Charlie casually asked for “one Mc-Happy meal”, before hanging up.
Take a listen to the call recording here:
In a follow-up call, officer Bonilla spoke with Charlies’s father and told him that an officer would be stopping by for a welfare check-up.
Officer Randolph Scott Valdez stopped by the house to make sure there was no emergency, but also brought a meal from the restaurant with him, the Mesa Police department wrote in a Facebook post.
According to the post, Officer Valdez went beyond his call of duty and took some time time to explain the importance of 911 emergencies to the boy.
The police department also shared a picture of Officer Valdez and Charlie – holding his Happy Meal – on their Facebook page. The picture soon went viral and the officer was appreciated for going beyond his call of duty.
