911 Operator: This is E-911, can you state your emergency?
Woman Caller (panicked): Me an’ Bubba Joe was watchin’ the TV and he done just keeled over! He’s a-thrashin’ around and I don’t know what to do!
911: Ma’am, just calm down. We’ll send an ambulance right away. Can you tell me your address?
Caller: Yeah, we’s on 433 Eucalyptus Boulevard.
911: Thank you. Could you please spell that for me?
Caller: (After a long pause) Uh… well…. Um, look, would it be okay if I just drag him over to Oak Street and y’all pick him up there?
