Funny Little Boy Mistakenly Calls 911, Writes Adorable Apology Letter to Police
Police officers who were sent to a house because of a little boy's mistaken 911 call couldn’t stay mad for long after seeing the boy's adorable apology letter.
In mid-November, Eden Prairie, Minnesota, emergency dispatchers received a 911 call at 5:30 a.m. They heard movement in the background, but no one responded to their questions.
Two officers were dispatched to the residential address that most closely matched the coordinates of the call’s location.
At the home, officers found a young boy named Wyatt who was playing with his mother’s phone.
The officers talked to Wyatt and his parents about why they were there and when it’s appropriate to call 911.
Soon after their visit, the officers received the apology letter from Wyatt, revealing that their lesson had sunk in.
The adorable, handwritten note read:
I am sorry that I called you today, hung up on you, and I will not do it again at all!
Eden Prairie police said parents will sometimes give children their old cell phones that no longer have service. However, as a safety feature, those phones are still capable of making 911 phone calls.
In order to completely disable a phone, the battery must be removed as well.
