As children, most of us wanted to call the police with our parents because they dropped us off on time or did not bring us to Chuck E. Cheese whenever we wanted. The Mercer Morrison from Buzz60 has the story.
A five-year-old boy in Michigan tried to satisfy his fast food cravings by dialing the only number he could dial on a deactivated mobile phone: 911.
As the dispatcher last on Iziah Hall responded On Sunday morning, the local station WZZM-TV reported he was explaining his emergency.
"Can you bring me McDonalds?" he asked.
Dispatcher Sara Kuberski said she could not, but she had to contact police officer Dan Patterson.
"I laughed to myself … The 5-year-old calls for clearance and orders McDonalds," Patterson told WZZM.
The policeman drove to Iziah's home in Wyoming to check for welfare at a McDonald's on the way to order food for the boy.

No one answered when Patterson knocked on the front door, so he knocked on a window and found Iziah.
"I think the first thing he said to me was," My grandma will be so angry, can you please go? Patterson waited for WZZM.
Patterson waited until Iziah's grandmother, who slept when the boy called, opened the door.The policeman then taught the boy if calls were to be made to 911.
Iziah could connect by 911 The deactivated mobile phone to the Internet, the broadcaster reported, much to the surprise of his grandmother.
"We bring in many people who let their children play on their cell phones, and many of them are disabled and their parents can not recognize them Still calling 911, "Kuberski told WZZM.
To avoid inadvertent 911 calls on legacy phones, the Federal Communications Commission recommends checking to see if the 911 feature can be disabled through device settings.
Iziah said to WZZM, he believed the incident was funny, but his grandmother said he understands what is now considered an emergency.
