Children often require their parents to help them with everyday things like getting dressed and getting around. However, what would you do if your mother didn’t wake up one morning? That’s precisely what happened to 4-year-old Sophie. One morning, she woke up to find her mom still sleeping. This was highly unusual for her because her mother was often up before she came out of her room. Sophie tried to wake her up, but nothing would work. Initially, Sophie thought her mom was tired, but the hours ticked away with no sign of her mother waking, so she worried that something was wrong. The only number she knew was 911.
Sophie’s mother had made sure she memorized 911 for emergencies, and that’s the only thing she could do when her mom still wouldn’t wake up. Tears rolled down her cheeks as she said, “My mom has been sleeping all day.”
The 911 operator wasn’t expecting a young child on the phone, and he immediately drew up an image in his mind. Therefore, he sent the police and an ambulance to the address. However, it was harder to get inside than it should have been.
