A 10-year-old schoolboy called emergency services for help with a difficult assignment – and a kind dispatcher patiently helped him.
Antonia Bundy, who works for the police department in Lafayette, Louisiana in the US, received a call earlier this month from an unnamed boy who urgently wanted help with the “ton of homework” he had.
In a voice recording posted on the department’s official Twitter page on Friday 25 January, Antonia can be heard calmly working with the youngster.
“I had a really bad day, and I just don’t know,” the boy began the call.
“What happened at school that made you have a bad day?” Antonia replied.
“I just have tons of homework,” he said then detailed that he specifically needed help with fractions, Metro reports.
“What’s three-fourths plus one-fourth?” the boy asked.
Antonia then worked through the sum and explained to the schoolboy how to solve it.
Afterwards the youngster thanked her.
“I’m sorry for calling you but I really needed help,” he said.
Lafayette Police Sergeant Matt Gard told NBC News that Antonia was a “hard worker”.
“She’s always very dedicated to what she does.”
