Woman Calls 911 To Request Babysitter (Dumbest 911 Call)

A woman near Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin will not be charged after calling 911 for a babysitter.

Apparently the mother of triplets thought the TV show "Nanny 911" was a commercial for a service that offers babysitters through 911.

She is heard sighing, saying "I need a babysitter." She also said she needed some company. When the operator explained 911 isn't a help line service, she hung up the phone.

The cops did send an officer to her house and found she was frazzled, but OK. She apparently made an honest mistake and will not face criminal charges.

Dodge County Sheriff Todd Nehls called the phone call "an example of some of the influence television has on some of the things we deal with." He said, "If you listen to the call ... she's looking for a nanny. But you don't hear any kids screaming in the background.

"Nanny 911" is a popular TV show that features a British nanny who helps American families with their children.
