C'mon Get Happy: Boy Calls 911 for Math Homework Help--and Gets It!

A kid in Lafayette, Indiana called 911 earlier this month . . . said he'd had a really hard day . . . and that he was having trouble with his math homework. Specifically, how to add fractions.

The boy was thought to be 8 or 9 years old.

A dispatcher named Antonia Bundy got the call. And it happened to be during a lull in her day, where she didn't have any other calls coming in. So instead of explaining that 911 is only for emergencies, she offered to help him.

She talked him through how to add three-fourths and one-fourth, and why they add up to one. And the Lafayette police department posted the entire call online!
