A Woman Tells 911 Her Sister Has Ebola . . . Just So They’ll Show Up Faster
On Thursday, a woman in Columbus, Ohio who hasn’t been identified called 911, and told them her sister had a high fever.
She got annoyed when they transferred her. So she mentioned a few more KEY details when the next person got on the phone. Specifically that it was a 107-degree fever . . . her sister had just been to AFRICA . . . and it might be EBOLA.
Which DID get their attention. The cops immediately went to their house, roped it off with crime-scene tape, and a team of people in HAZMAT suits showed up.
But once they got them to the hospital, they realized the sister DIDN’T have Ebola . . . HADN’T been to Africa . . . and the woman just lied so the ambulance would GET THERE faster.
So far, there’s no word on whether or not she’ll be charged for misusing 911. But according to police, the whole ordeal was a HUGE drain on resources.
Reported Crocodile Turned Out To Be Inflatable Toy
British police received several calls reporting a 3-foot crocodile in a nearby neighborhood garden. And since crocodiles are a rarity in England, they responded with snare poles, nets, and riot shields while a team of wildlife experts from the local zoo were called-in to assist.
The officers became suspicious when they threw water on the animal and it failed to move.
It turns out that the “animal” wasn’t a vicious crocodile……it was an inflatable TOY crocodile.
Police do not know how the toy ended up in the woman’s garden, but everyone had a good laugh.
A Guy Wins $1 Million in the Lottery, and Splits It With His Brother . . . Because They Made a Pact When They Were Kids
Earlier this month, 45-year-old Eric Hale of Bend, Oregon checked the numbers on a Powerball ticket he bought, and realized he’d won a MILLION BUCKS.
But back when he was a kid, Eric promised his brother Quinn that if he ever won the lottery, he’d split it with him.
Obviously they were kids, and I don’t think most people would blame him if he pretended to FORGET about it. There’s gotta be some kind of statute of limitations on an offer like that. But instead, Eric immediately called his brother, told him he won . . . and said he was KEEPING his promise.
They got their money this past Thursday, and each took home about $335,000 after taxes.
