Five-year-old Manuel Beshara called 911 and let the dispatcher know he was hungry. He asked "pizza, please."
Officers were dispatched to the home, thinking that a well-being check was needed. They found Beshara and his 15-year-old sister, who explained that they were fine, but her brother grabbed the phone without her knowledge.
So the officers decided to use the moment to explain to the boy about the proper use of 911. They then ordered a large pizza and personally delivered it to him. The Sanford Police Department wrote on Facebook,
Officers Morales, Mejia, and Hernandez responded to a home on Key Haven Dr., for a well-being check on a 911 call made by a juvenile. While officers were on their way, dispatch informed them that the child told them he was hungry and wanted to order pizza. After arriving on scene, officers met the young boy and his older sister. She told officers they were fine and her brother had grabbed the phone without her knowledge. Officers used it as an opportunity to teach about the proper use of 911, then went and bought a large box of pizza and personally delivered it.
