A woman had been kidnapped, attacked, and abandoned in the forest 

“Former 999 operator in the UK.

A call came through from a young woman that had been grabbed off the street, driven to a remote location, beaten, and repeatedly raped by a gang of men. In the middle of November, they had left her nearly naked in a forest. She didn’t know where she had been left and had called using her mobile phone.

For the better part of an hour, I sat talking with this girl as some of my colleagues tried to locate where she was. The problem was that only two cell towers were picking her up, so it was really hard to triangulate where she might be. When a third tower picked up her call, we were able to identify where she was and direct the police to her.

The whole time, I talked with her and tried to keep her calm. Hearing the terror in her voice anytime she thought that they might be coming back for her or that her battery was going to die was heart breaking. There where moments when she stopped talking to me and I could hear her whimpering or saying ‘please’ over and over again. Finally, the police reached her and called out the word that she had given me. After a short chat with the police, I terminated the call, logged it, and signed out of the system. I never signed in again.

They never found the men that did this. I hope there is a special place in hell reserved for them.” — Tobanis1978
