An Aussie man phones an ambulance because his mate has just been hit by a car.

“Hi. Yes, get an ambulance here quick,” he screams. “My mate is bleeding from his nose and ears and I think both his legs are broken.”

The operator tries to calm the man down and asks for his location.

“We are on Eucalyptus Street,” the man says.

Confused, the operator asks the man to spell it out so she can send a medical team out.

The operator hears silence and then heavy breathing.

“Are you there sir?” she asks.

Again, she hears nothing but heavy breathing.

“Sir, can you hear me?”

This goes on for several minutes.

“Sir, I need you to answer me,” the operator says again. “Can you please spell out the name of the street you’re on.”

Suddenly, the man begins to speak again.

“Sorry about that,” he says. “I couldn’t spell eucalyptus, so I’ve just dragged my mate to Oak Street. O. A. K.”
