Police dispatchers are trained to deal with a number of situations, and a dispatcher in IN had to know her numbers when a boy called 911 seeking help with his homework.

Antonia Bundy, who works for the Lafayette Police Department, answered a call earlier this month from a boy who told her he "had a really bad day" and had "tons of homework".

Antonia: 'What happened at school that made you have a bad day?'

When asked about his emergency the boy replies: 'I had a really bad day and, I don't know'.

Bundy: OK. What subject do you have homework in?

Antonia Bundy, a 911 dispatcher from Lafayette, IN helps a child student with a math problem.

While a math emergency isn't ordinarily grounds for calling 911, Bundy remained on the line with the young boy for nearly two minutes while guiding him through the problem. They train for many emergency situations, homework help is not one they plan for.

Standing water caused problems early, around 5 a.m., but the race continued by cycling through green- and yellow-flag conditions.

Bundy asked when the boy told her why he was calling.

He went on to say that he needed help with his math homework.

In an audio recording released by the department on Friday, Bundy can be heard calmly helping the youngster with a math problem he described as "so hard".

Gard, who said officers think they know the school he attends, added: 'He's not going to be in trouble'.

"I'm sorry for calling you, but I really needed help", he told her.

By asking the caller a series of questions, Bundy was able to figure out the boy was struggling with math - specifically fractions.

"You're fine, we're always hear to help", Bundy responded.
