CAMDEN COUNTY, N.J. — A dispatcher and police officer helped a mother after she called 911 to report she had no money to buy her children food.
NBC Philadelphia reported that dispatcher Tondaleya Bagby overheard another dispatcher having a conversation with the mother of four.
“I had went to local churches and everything trying to find food for my children,” the woman said in the 911 call. “My kids have not eaten since yesterday.”
“Well this is for police only,” the dispatcher said. “It’s not for this.”
Bagby, who has children of her own, said the call made her feel for the mother.
