The 911 Call

Call 911 - Wikipedia

The 911 operator answered the call, “what is your emergency.” On the other hand, the child told the operator, “They will kill my mother.” The operator, “How old are you? what is your name? Stay calm. I am here to help you”. The child got scared, and he hung up the phone. The call came from the landline, and the child’s voice seemed frightening. Thus, the operator thought, “No, it is not a prank call.” She dispatched the address to local law enforcement and asked them, “Can you make sure if the child has made a pranked call or it is real.”

Within 2 minutes, the police officer knocked at the door of an influential family in the area. A 7 years old boy who was shivering with fear opened the door and pointed upstairs. Paramedics had also arrived at the scene but were awaiting a clearance signal from police officers. One policeman started to rescue the unconscious woman while another secured the scene. The paramedics then went inside the room and treated the woman. Suddenly, the vulnerable and injured woman became stronger when she saw her children in a stranger’s custody. The police officers had full sympathy for the injured woman, but they also had to do their job. This was a case of deadly domestic violence in the state. The injured mother was helpless. So, instead of giving custody to the CPS, the police officer took the children and their mother to the hospital.

She told the paramedic, “Can you call the on-call neurosurgeon and radiologist? I would appreciate it if you could tell them to meet us at the ambulance entrance. The paramedics knew both doctors very well, so they sent them a message. When the ambulance arrived at the ED entrance, both doctors were waiting for them at the entrance. The injured woman suddenly stopped the paramedics. She was out of breath due to significant swelling around her neck. But, she was a strong woman. She told the radiologist, “Di, take care of the children. Make sure the boy doesn’t give any statement. Call your mom, she is in London now. Please let her know everything”.

The young woman was brutally injured. She was strangulated. Her face was full of bruises. She closed her eyes and refused to talk to the authorities. Her eyes were closed, but she could see the camera’s flashes. The police officer of the crime unit was taking pictures of the woman’s injuries. The police could not take the statement from the boy because of the absence of the parents. However, the boy could not stop himself. He yelled loudly, “My dad did it. He strangled my mom’s neck”.The detective told the injured young woman, “You have a brave son. How about you? I heard you are a pre-medical student. Now is the time to stop the violence”. The young man kept her eyes closed as she was waiting for somebody.

Her brother-in-law from Canada reached the hospital within 2 hours. She looked at him with some questions. He understood everything just by looking at her. Her eyes had asked many questions from him. He only said, “I am his brother, but I am your brother at this time. Don’t think that your decision will make us apart. I think it is good that he needs to learn some lessons from authority. How many years have you already waited and wasted? Did he improve? I am 100% sure that you are not in love with him, so why are you trying to hide the truth? Is this your way to punish yourself?”
The injured woman did not cry but said bravely, “My mommy said the woman should keep the family’s secret. It should not go out of the walls”. The American-born brother, “Are you kidding me?”

The injured woman said, “But brother, he will be jailed. How it would influence my children”. The brother said, “I will handle it, but he needs to see the judge.”

The old woman called her from London, “I am already at the airport. I am with you. I’m sorry. It is all my fault. I did not know that my eggs could be so dirty”.

He was never arrested. His abuser visited her in the hospital. “I am so sorry. I was drunk and lost control. I love you so much. I will never touch alcohol again”.

She laughed, “How often have you made these promises with me, and how often have you failed.”

Within one day, the mother also arrived from London. She just slapped his grown-up son.

Two weeks later, both appeared in front of a judge in a private setting. The judge, who was very straightforward and formal, told the husband, “Both of you are highly educated people. You guys have beautiful children and a bright future. So what is the issue, gentleman? Is there anything wrong with your wife?

The husband said, No, Sir. It is all my fault, and I take full responsibility”.

The honorable judge asked the wife, “what do you suggest? Your in-law family seems to love you more than their son”.

The young woman said, “Your honor, please, give him a chance to improve. Rest depends on the almighty”.

The judge smiled, “Two years of probation. No injuries to this bright woman anymore. There should be no alcohol inside your residence. The sentence will not be easy if you fail to keep the probation”.

The courage of the little boy has brought peace into the house. No more fear of weekends anymore. She did not have to hide anymore. The brother had checked on her every week. The old woman never took the vacation again because she did not want to leave the young woman home alone.

Everybody was so happy. The human judge had given a chance to improve somebody so the children could have their father. Two educated people could have a bright future together. The executive of Boeing and a future medical provider could have a successful journey together.

However, the almighty had some different plans. The Almighty had forgiven the man for the children’s sake for eight years. However, the almighty could see the deeply hidden pain inside of the young woman, which she hid behind her beautiful smile. Her silence and agony could not let the almighty sit quietly. The almighty provides justice, but some take it could take a while. Of course, on Nov 9, God had provided justice to the woman. At 37, the young man died of a heart attack. The young woman had become a widow at 30, but she was not 30. In reality, she was 26 years old. Yes, she became a widow at the age of 26. At the same age, the girls start having dreams about their marriage. However, it was the end of eight years of the brutal life or marriage of the young woman. She was numb and dejected, so she could not weep when she became a widow.
