A Florida senior citizen contacted 911 after her old refrigerator broke and told the operator she didn’t have the money to fix it. Shortly, after the call, deputies brought a brand new fridge to her home.
According to the reports, Cheryl Nanartonis contacted 911 asking for help as her refrigerator had broken down. She was worried her food would go bad and she didn’t have money to fix it.
The operator told Nanartonis that the number is only for emergencies but the deputies at the Martin County Sheriff’s Office went to her home because they “believed she was in crisis.”
When they got there, they discovered it was not the kind of emergency they expected.
However, the officers also felt for the woman as she revealed she didn’t have money to fix her fridge.
A post by the sheriff department’s official Facebook account says; “Realizing how upset Cheryl was, they knew they couldn’t clear the call without taking action. So, Deputy Marcum, Deputy Elliot and Sgt. Flynn made arrangements with the Jensen Beach Goodwill to donate a gently used refrigerator to Cheryl. The deputies even had it delivered, and Cheryl was back on track.”
