Wed Oct 2,10:29 AM ET
LINZ, Austria (Reuters) - A four-year-old Austrian boy was so
disgusted by his grandmother's plum dumplings that he dialed
emergency services for help, Austrian state television ORF said on
When the startled policeman on the other end of the line in Linz,
Upper Austria, asked the young caller what he thought the police
should do, the boy was clueless, the report said.
The officer pleaded with the boy to give grandmother's plum dumplings
(Zwetschkenknoedel) another chance. He agreed and hung up.
