Couple Charged After Toddler Calls 911 15 Times

LOWVILLE, N.Y. -

An upstate couple was arrested after the woman’s 2-year-old daughter used their cellphones to dial 911 a total of 15 times last month, The Associated Press reported. Village of Lowville police officer Matthew Martin says the couple claimed they tried to keep their phones away from the persistent toddler, but the girl kept getting them and dialing 911. He spoke to the couple after 911 dispatchers reported that a child had called 14 times in a single day in January. The child called 911 a 15th time later that night. The couple was charged with obstructing governmental administration. The girl called 911 three more times the next day.
