Talking to daddy and mommy and the fireman”, came the answer.
Growing more worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter, through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, “What’s that noise?”
“A helicopter” answered the whispering voice.
“What is going on there?!”, demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive.
Again whispering, the child answered, “The search team just landed the helicopter.”
