Here is a copy and paste from my post a week or two ago.....

 

Ok, today my husband and I got up around 9 am and I came out to the living room and got on the computer. My husband got dressed and then was getting my son up when we heard the phone ring...(our cell phone that is) and the caller ID had a number I didn't know coming up. So, I answered it. I hear a woman breathing hard and crying hysterically but still being quiet. I kept asking "who is this" and she kept saying over and over again "help me, help me, omg, help me please". I wasn't sure if this was a prank but after about 20-30 seconds of this convo, she hung up. My husband grabbed the phone and called right back (prob not hte best thing to do but he did it anyways).  When he talked to the person that answered, they were completely composed and said "oops, wrong number". Ok, if I were crying like that one minute, i couldn't compose myself the next to sound normal, even if I was faking. So, to be on the safe side, I called the cops and gave them all the info. About 4 hours later, I was curious to see what happened to see if it was a prank or not. The lady at the police station was super sweet and since it was transferred to the sherrifs dept, she called there and asked what happened. . . turns out she was being burglarized and when my hubby called back, the ROBBER answered the phone or something of that sort. She was trying to reach anyone and happened to get us.  Luckily, she is perfectly fine and they went there and helped her. Man, I wish I could have done more to have gotten her help quicker! I just thought I would tell you guys what happened since none of my family wants to answer there phone and Im eager to tell someone!! LOl. This totally reminds me of that movie cellular!

 

Oh, and we have no idea as to why she called us instead of 911 but she did..... maybe she was blindly dialing. our numbers are close together on the key pad.... it is all a mystery to me still.
