911, do you have an emergency? Somebody, please help me, please! I swear I didn’t do it on purpose, she ran out in front of me and— Calm down ma’am, can you tell me what happened? Do you need an ambulance? It’s Leah! She’s been… a car! It all happened so fast! Help me, please! I don’t want her to die! Who’s Leah? Your friend? My sister! This can’t be happening! Not to her! What is your name? How old are you? Lizzy. I’m only 16. Home alone! Please help me, please!
How old is your sister? Is she conscious and breathing? Only six! She won’t open her eyes. Breathing a little bit. She’s bleeding. Help me, please! Okay, what’s your address? 212 Juggle Lane, please hurry! Hurry! An ambulance is on the way. Do you need to stay on the line? No, ma’am. Leah! I’m coming! It’s going to be alright! Okay, the ambulances should be there soon. Take care. Okay, thank you. Leah! Leah! Oh, I’m so sorry—
