Charles Ramsey 911 Call: Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight Found Alive

While Charles Ramsey sat on his Cleveland porch enjoying his dinner, he saw Amanda Berry, one of the three women who had been kidnapped and held captive for ten years, scream out for help. While Castro was able to run away, Ramsey jumped into action and rushed over to help Berry escape from her ten year prison. A small child followed her as she proceeded to call 911. Ramsey immediately called 911 himself, frantically urging the operator to send police and an ambulance for the distraught Berry. 


While the operator seemed unworried and apathetic, Ramsey clamored to get him all the details necessary while giving him the story of how he saved Berry, and subsequently Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight. He told the operator that he had just returned from McDonald's and was sitting on his porch when he saw and heard Berry trying to escape. He also mentioned that a large crowd formed when they heard Berry’s pleas for help. When prompted to ask Berry if she needed an ambulance, Ramsey replied, “She need everything, but she in a panic, bro. I guess she been kidnapped, put yourself in her shoes.”

The three kidnapped women and a six year-old child believed to be Berry's daughter were taken immediately to a local hospital. Police have arrested the three brothers that lived in the house.
