Monroe County Sheriffs dept. received an odd 911 call recently. My favorite part is when the sheriff’s reports mentions “injuries inflicted by the stuffed head.” I hope the guy wasn’t hurt but I hope he at least has a sense of humor about it.

Sheriff’s dispatchers didn’t know what the problem was when they got a frantic 911 call at 1:20 a.m. All the male caller could do is yell his address and tell them he was “crushed”.

Sheriff’s deputies rushed to the scene – a residence at the 88 mile marker of highway U.S. One. When they got inside, they found the man who’d apparently fallen asleep in his recliner. He was abruptly awakened when a the head of a water buffalo which had been hanging on the wall next to him fell onto his lap.

According to Deputy Don Dalton, the head was so heavy the man couldn’t move, but his cell phone was close enough to his hand that he was able to call for help. He was taken to Mariner’s Hospital for treatment of the injuries inflicted by the stuffed head.

The 911 call is definitely worth a listen.
