Nanny 911 Call

JUNEAU, Wis. (AP) -- A 9-1-1 dispatcher in Dodge County was stunned for a moment when a caller told her she needed a nanny.

The sheriff's department dispatcher asked the woman to say again what she wanted ... and the caller, sounding a little exasperated, said she was calling 9-1-1 because she needed a baby sitter.

The dispatcher then explained that her office doesn't handle that kind of emergency.

The caller thanked the dispatcher before hanging up.

Sheriff Todd Nehls (NAYLZ) noted that there's a reality television show on the Fox network called "Nanny 9-1-1" ... but the real 9-1-1 line is NOT a place to call for help with kids.
