Kid Calls 911 Over PlayStation Network Outage

Kid Calls 911 Over PlayStation Network Outage

Sony’s PSN service had some problems over Christmas. For most this was an inconvenience, but for one kid from Florida, it was more of an emergency.

WPTV reports that a teen decided to call 911 and ask “Do you know about the whole thing that’s going on with the PlayStation Network?”

The operator, unsure exactly what’s going on at first, asks their colleagues for more information, before telling the kid to maybe go and call Sony instead.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office later tweeted a partial transcript of the exchange:
