According to Fox 5 Atlanta, a man repeatedly received a “please hold” recording when he called 911 after being shot for interrupting a crime.
The incident occurred in the parking lot of the Kyma restaurant in Buckhead on Sunday evening.
At 7:30 p.m., the waiter took a quick break outside when he noticed two males attempting to break inside a car.
When they noticed the employee, they turned around and shot him. The bullet struck his arm.
The two men sped away in their getaway vehicle.
Shortly after the man tried calling 911, he was repeatedly played a “please hold” recording, as he frustratedly continued to get through to an operator.
A coworker at the restaurant then decided to contact an off-duty cop she knew. That officer called the communications center on his police radio to explain the situation.
FOX 5 received the incident call from the Atlanta Police Department.
The waiter’s coworkers ended up driving the injured man to a hospital.
