Not only was this woman incredibly brave to reach out for help, she was also extremely clever to do it so covertly!

A woman who was being beat by her drunk boyfriend managed to notify police, and keep her attacker in the dark, by dialing 911 and ordering a pizza.
An emergency operator shared the story on a Reddit board dedicated to the most unforgettable calls they had ever received.
The operator explained that the unknown woman called, gave her address, and then ordered a ‘large [pizza] with half pepperoni, half mushroom and peppers.’
The operator said she assumed the call was a prank, so she asked the caller if they knew they were calling 911.
When the woman said she did, the operator immediately asked if she had an actual emergency.
Once the woman said she did, the operator finally realized what was happening, asking the woman, ‘and you can’t talk about it because there’s someone in the room with you?’
The operator was able to quickly notify officers who were just a mile away who arrived on the scene to find the female ‘banged up’ and the boyfriend ‘drunk.’
She explained he had been doing this for awhile, and he was cuffed and taken away.
What’s more, a quick search of the database turned up multiple reports of domestic abuse at the address the operator revealed.
‘I thought she was pretty clever to use that trick,’ said the operator.
‘Definitely one of the most memorable calls.’
