911 dispatch received a call from a group of Utah police officers stuck in the elevator of the public safety building the 911 operator was located in. There was a bit of confusion at first but soon after, the officers were rescued from the elevator. Watch the video.
Here is a transcript provided by the Salt Lake Fire Department of the 911 call.
911 what’s your emergency?
-“This is the police”
Yes sir, this is the police, what’s the nature of your emergency?
-“No, this is the police”
Correct again sir, how can we help you?
-“No, this is literally the police. We’re calling you from an elevator. We seem to have put too many humans onto this thrill ride and now we’re stuck!”
Sir, did I hear that right? You are stuck in the elevator and you need help getting out?
-“That’s correct ma’am.”
Copy, what’s the address of the building?
-“Uh...that’s the thing, see, it’s THIS building. The one you’re currently in ma’am.”
SIR, did I copy you’re stuck in the elevator of our own public safety building?
-“Yes ma’am. And we need help getting out. This is not a drill, I repeat, this is not a drill.”
Copy that sir, we are sending the fire department over to rescue you.
-“Oh great, these jokes write themselves! I’ll bet they can’t wait to post this on social media!”
*no humans were harmed while exiting the elevator
