A 10-year-old boy called 911 because according to him, his father, Owen Gilman, was drunk-driving at a high speed that he feared for his life. The boy also told them he considered jumping out from the moving car because he believed it was better than crashing.

While the call was being transferred to Connecticut State Police, the call disconnected. Moments later, police were summoned to the two-vehicle crash scene, in which one of the vehicles involved was driven by Gilman. The other vehicle and its driver was thrown 50 feet off the area down the ridge.

The boy and his sister survived the car crash with lacerations and were brought to the nearby hospital, while Gilman, who was unhurt, was arrested when he failed the sobriety test.

Another 911 call from Old Bridge, New Jersey, was made by a 7-year-old girl who accidentally destroyed the Elf on the Shelf. Isabelle LaPeruta thought she had ruined Christmas and was afraid the elf would lose its magic after a ball she was playing with hit it.

If a kid calls 911, the police are obliged to visit the child’s home. The child’s mother, Lynanne LaPeruta, was sleeping upstairs and woke up with Isabelle trying to send the police away. Luckily, the men in uniform were very kind, they considered Isabelle’s concern as emergency.

Kids were taught to call cops whenever they need urgent help, so when 2-year-old Aaliyah Garret from South Carolina was having difficulty putting on her pants, she thought it was an emergency and called 911.

Her grandfather didn’t know his granddaughter called the 911 and was surprised to see Deputy Martha Lohnes at the door. But while he was explaining, a half-dressed Aaliyah appeared behind him. Then Deputy Lohnes helped her with her pants and putting on her shoes.

The 5-year-old boy who crawled through the wreckage and dialed 911 after a car crash


In 2015, a courageous 5-year-old boy called 911 using his mom’s phone after she died in a car accident with his older sister.

Ellen Caswell was driving back to their home in Oneida, New York, when she swerved off the road and hit a utility pole.

The only survivor was her son Kadyn Depasquale, who managed to drag himself through the wreckage to find her phone. He immediately called his dad and told him, “Dad, mom and sissy are dead, and I am in the woods in a bush.” Knowing his phone’s battery was nearing its limit, the father instructed his son to call 911.
