  • LOWVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities have charged a northern New York woman and her boyfriend because the woman’s 2-year-old daughter used their cellphones to dial 911 a total of 15 times last month.

    Village of Lowville (LOW’-vihl) Police Officer Matthew Martin says the 23-year-old mother and her 33-year-old boyfriend told him they tried to keep their phones away from the persistent toddler, but the girl kept getting them and dialing 911.

    Martin spoke to the couple Wednesday after Lewis County 911 dispatchers reported that a child had called 14 times in January. Martin says the child called 911 a 15th time later that night.

    1. I have to believe they think it’s cute. There is no way a 2 year old can reach a telephone if it’s placed high enough out of her reach or if the keypad is password protected. The solution really is a no-brainer.
