No Lemonade? Call 911!

A matter of life and death: lemonade availability.
A matter of life and death: lemonade availability.

A Boynton Beach, Florida man experienced a terrible emergency recently: the local Burger King was out of lemonade.

66-year-old Jean Fortune was ordering food at a Burger King location in Boynton Beach when he was told that there was no more lemonade at the restaurant.  A distraught Fortune called 911 and complained about the lack of beverages.

Local police were not very sympathetic.  They cited Fortune for misusing emergency services, resulting in a mandatory court appearance.

No word on whether EMTs were able to revive the lemonade supply at Burger King.
