Manuel called the emergency line and told the dispatcher that he was hungry and wanted to order pizza.

Police checked on the little boy, thinking that a wellbeing check was in need, CNN reported.

They found Manuel at home with his 15-year-old sister, who told police she didn't realize that her little brother had called them.

The officers told Manuel when he should use 911 and when he shouldn't.

Then to help the boy and his "emergency" they did end up doing a pizza run, according to CNN.

They shared the story on Facebook, adding the reminder #dontcall911fordelivery.
