My friend is dead!” he said, panting to the employee. what can I do ? what can I do ? The operator said to him in a calm, relaxed voice, “Calm down. I can help you. First, let’s make sure he’s dead. There was silence and a gunshot was heard. Then the hunter picked up the phone and said, ‘Well, what now?” »»
