000 does nothing but insults

Extremely unreliable and disgraceful triple-zero emergency service in Australia. (To Don: triple-zero is Australia's national emergency number, handles emergency calls to Police, Fire and Ambulance services.) There's the real story: a 17-year-old student David Iredale got lost in a mountain with extremely poor reception, David tried to overcome the poor reception by raising his voice, instead he got told off by the operator. That was not all, the triple-zero operators are just like telemarketers insisting on getting David's address (street names) after he repetitively mentioned that he was in the mountains in a National Park. The triple-zero emergency service completely ignored David's plea for help.

Unfortunately, after running out water and enduring 37˚C temperature, David did not make it. His body was found in December 2006, and the recording to emergency was just released to his parents.

Unlike the beautiful Boston, the electricity supply has recently been proven extremely unreliable, this story showed that emergency service is just a joke.
