RIDICULOUS NON-EMERGENCY CALLS FEATURED ON OUTRAGEOUS 911

- Two-Part Series Premieres Saturday, December 14 at 10 PM ET/PT -

 

Heart attacks, car accidents, or fire. Everyone knows that 9-1-1 serves as an emergency telephone number – a vital lifeline to serve the community during crisis situations.  But some of the calls made to this emergency hotline are anything but!

 

Life or death? How about a dating hotline? A call for take-out Chinese?  An unintentional butt-dial made in the middle of committing a crime?! TLC’s newest series, OUTRAGEOUS 911, features the actual audio from some of the most ridiculous – and real-life – calls ever received. From a woman who phoned 9-1-1 on herself for driving drunk to a naked man who got his private parts stuck in a pool pump, this two-part series reveals a slew of bizarre stories and odd reasons why people call 9-1-1 for circumstances that are far from emergencies. The first episode of OUTRAGEOUS 911 premieres Saturday, December 14 at 10PM (ET/PT) on TLC followed by the second episode this coming January.

 

Make sure to check out the above clips to see what happens when a burglar with a strange MO calls for help after the owners return home early as well as when a stubborn 4-year-old phones 9-1-1 because he’s not getting his way.

    Sounds like the real-life version of Reno 911.
