New Jersey Cop Helps Find Teddy Bear for Boy with Autism – The Good News
It wasn't an "emergency," but the police helped anyways.
Ryan is 12-years-old. He lives in Woodbridge Township, New Jersey, and is on the autism spectrum. When his favorite teddy bear stuffed animal fell to the side of his bed, he panicked and called 911.
It's police department policy to respond to hang-up calls, so even though Ryan's dad assured them that there was no emergency, they arrived at his house. Officer Khari Manzini happened to be specially trained in autism services and knew how to handle the situation.
He helped Ryan find his teddy bear and explained the use of the 911 system. Is somebody cutting onions in here?
