4-Year-Old Boy Calls 911 For Help, His “Problem” Is Rather Wise

boy calls cops for help

Most of us at some point had a problem with Math. Some of us sadly may still have a problem with it to this very day and despite it because it becomes stressful. This four-year-old kid was having trouble with his Math problem (subtractions/ “take aways”) and decided that he was going to get some “serious” help by calling 911 to ask an operator how to do it.

The most amazing thing about this reported incident was how the operator responded to this unusual call.

Check out the conversation and the recorded video below.

Operator: 911 emergencies.

Boy: Yeah I need some help.

Operator: What’s the matter?

Boy: With my Math. 

Operator: With your mouth?

Boy: No with my Math. I have to do it. Will you help me?

Operator: Sure. Where do you live?

Boy: No with my Math.

Operator: Yeah, I know. Where do you live though?

Boy: No, I want you to talk to me on the phone.

Operator: No I can’t do that. I can send someone to help you.

Boy: Okay.

Operator: What kind of Math do you need help with?

Boy: I have take aways.

Operator: Alright, what’s the problem?

Boy: Um, you have to help me with my Math.

Operator: Okay, tell me what the Math is.

Boy: Okay, 16 take away 8 is what?

Operator: You tell me. How much do you think it is?

Boy: I don’t know… 1.

Operator: No. How old are you?

Boy: I’m only 4.

Operator: 4!

Boy: Yeah.

OperatorWhat’s another problem, that’s a tough one.

BoyUm, oh here’s one. 5 take away 5.

Operator5 take away 5 and how much do you think that is?


Woman: Johnny what do you think you’re doing?

BoyThe poilceman is helping me with my Math.

WomanWhat did I tell you about going on the phone?

OperatorIt’s the mother…

BoyYou said if I needed help to call somebody.

Woman: I didn’t mean the police.


Well, she did tell him to call someone if he needed help. Who’s to say he’s wrong for calling the cops? They’re always helping, aren’t they?
