81-year-old Clarence Blackmon called 911 because he needed food and couldn't move. Luckily, his call was answered by Marilyn Hinson.

Clarence Blackmon is 81 and lives alone in Fayetteville, North Carolina. This week, he returned home after months spent in the hospital for cancer treatment, only to find there was no food in his house. Tired and hungry, he found that he didn't even have the energy to get out of his chair. Without any friends or family in the area, he realized he was stuck and did the only thing he could think of: he called 911.

"What I need is someone to get to the grocery store and bring me some food because I need to eat something. Whatever you can do to help, obviously. I can't do anything. I can't go anywhere. I can't get out of my damn chair."
