What do you think will happen next?

9-1-1 What's Your Emergency?

"Yes, I'm at 107 Sycamore Lane. I need an ambulance, my wife is having a baby. Hurry!." The man on the other line frantic and excited yelled to the dispatcher.

"Ok, sir, let me send an ambulance to your address right away. Please stay calm, I will send emergency personnel out there to your residence as soon as possible."

"Yes, thank you, Miriam."

The man quickly hung up the phone.

The dispatcher sat quietly at her desk as she gathered herself together, trying to figure out how the caller knew her name.

Then she remembered.

But it couldn't be him.

Her eyes filled with tears.

As she told her supervisor she had to go home for the evening.
