The Shocking Reason This Elder Man Called 911 Reveals Something Is Seriously Wrong in Our Support System
It is not every day that 911 operators get to personally render the aid they are asked to deliver. Marilyn Hinson a Fayetteville, NC 911 operator did just that. She received a plea for help from Clarence Blackmon, a wheelchair bound cancer patient recently released from the hospital. “I can’t do anything, I can’t go anywhere. I can’t get out of my damn wheelchair… I need someone to bring me some food.”
As he recounted the incident to the reporter Mr. Blackmon told ABC News , “I’m not broke. I’m not bleeding. I’m hungry and I just want some food.”
These were the words that spurred Hinson to action. After asking permission from her supervisor Hinson purchased food and with the assistance of the Fayetteville, NC police department delivered groceries to the appreciative Mr. Blackmon.
Blackmon called the ham sandwich she made for him, “a feast.”
