Wheelchair Bound Teen Makes a Emergency Call About a Spider
A Seattle teen recently called 911 to report an intruder in her home. The brazen thief, it turned out to be a ‘massive freaking’ spider.
Makenna Sewell a wheelchair bound 17-year-old , was forced to call police in Portland, Oregon, after being confronted by what she thought was dangerous brown recluse spider which she photographed using her cellphone, left.
She told the dispatcher that she generally wasn’t fazed by spiders, but her mother was recently bitten by one and had to go to the hospital.
The audio from her police call reveals a rather comical scene.
’I'm home alone and there is a giant spider on the back of my couch, and I’m talking giant. I’ve never seen a spider this big and I have no idea what to do,’ she told the slightly perplexed operator.
The teen estimated the spider was the size of a baseball and said it was appeared similar to a tarantula.
She told the dispatcher that she generally wasn’t fazed by spiders, but a family member was recently bitten by one and had to go to the hospital.
She also explained that she had initially tried to get hold of her parents but failed.
‘I don’t know if you guys have anything I can do, or if I just sit here and stare at it and wait for someone to get home to kill it,’ she asked.
Despite the fact that killing insects was not standard protocol, police decided to help the young lady and four officers arrived at her home to swat the creepy-crawly with a newspaper.
