RENTON, WA (WCMH) – A Washington man’s 911 call about a plane crash turned out to be nothing more than a bad dream.
KOMO-TV reports a disoriented man took the prescription sleep aid Ambien before making the call.
The man called 911 and told police that he had been in a plane crash. He went on to describe in detail a small cargo plane that was on the way to Oregon.
Operator: Are you able to safely get out?
Caller: No. I’m pinned in.
Operator: Did it hit any buildings or just into the trees?
Caller: In the trees. In the field with trees.
Operator: Are you able to look out the window? Are you able to see for the wing where you are at?
Caller: No, I can’t see anything.
As it turned out, the entire incident was imagined.
A sleep expert told KOMO the man could have been hallucinating or having an adverse interaction between the Ambien and another drug.
