McDonald's Happy Meal

A McDonald's Happy Meal.

(Meredith) -- Sometimes, your fast food cravings just can't wait. That's what happened to Iziah, a 5-year-old boy from Wyoming.

Iziah managed to get a hold of a cell phone that his family says was deactivated years ago, but he somehow got it connected to WiFi.

According to WZZM, he called 911 early Sunday morning and asked if they could bring him McDonald's. His grandma was still asleep.

The 911 call revealed Iziah asking for McDonald's and the dispatcher telling him no. But dispatch still reached out to police to do a wellness check on Iziah to make sure everything was alright.

Officer Dan Patterson responded to the call. He said while he was on his way to the house, he would be driving past a McDonald's anyway, so he decided to stop and pick up a meal for Iziah.

"I figured hey, I'm driving past McDonald's on my way there and I might as well get him something," Patterson told WZZM.

When Patterson arrived at the house, no one answered the door, so he knocked on Iziah's window. Patterson said the first thing Iziah said to him was, "My grandma's going to be so mad. Can you please go away?"

According to WZZM, Iziah's grandma was not mad. In fact, she was glad that Iziah learned a lesson about what makes a true emergency.

Horrible move by the 911 operator. Teaching the kid over the phone (if there are no other calls) is one thing, but encouraging kid to do same thing again is foolish.

TRUMP supporter

Officer Dan Patterson did a fantastic job. Thank you Officer Patterson for caring about your community.


Yea he taught the kid that breaking the law is perfectly fine. The cop should have read him the riot act for calling 911 when it is not an emergency.


Now this kid will call 911 every time he is hungry. smart move. Just like rewarding the guy who is the loudest in line and serving him first. rewarding people for poor actions


Did you read the article? Did you witness the conversation between the officer the grandma and the boy? Cops, in general, do good work for the communities they serve. This kid and his grandma know that.


you are probably the parent that beats their children with a belt of a wooden spoon #callingthekettleblack


teaching a brat to misbehave is not a good idea.
