A woman called 911 to 'order a pizza' to report her mother being abused


An abused mother's daughter and a 911 operator are being praised after the Ohio woman called emergency services to "order a pizza" in an attempt to alert police without alerting the alleged abuser. 

The Nov. 13 call came into Oregon, Ohio, 911 dispatcher Tim Teneyck, who was initially confused when the caller asked to order a pizza. 

Teneyck was able to piece together the situation when the woman insisted that she didn't have the wrong number after being told that she was calling the emergency services.

In the released 911 call, the woman tells Teneyck that she's like to order a pizza to her apartment.
