Bizarre 911 Call Released After Toddler Falls In Fire Pit

January 5th, 2010 by

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — A bizarre 911 call (hear it) shows just how out of it a father was when his toddler fell into a fire pit. Police say Michael Bargeron was drunk on New Year’s Eve and playing too close to the fire with the 2-year-old boy.
Bargeron’s first call for help didn’t come until after the boy was already hospitalized.
“Do you have any records of an almost 3-year-old checking in?” Bargeron asked the 911 dispatcher in the call.

“What?” the dispatcher asked.
“Do you have any record of a 3-year-old checking in?”
“A 3-year-old checking in?” the dispatcher questioned.
“Yeah,” Bargeron replied.
“Uh no,” the dispatcher told him.
Bargeron, 24, was so intoxicated when he called 911 about his son, who just fell into a fire, not only did he not know where his son was but he couldn’t tell dispatchers where the New Year’s Eve party was.
“What address did he get burned at?” the dispatcher asked.
“I have no idea,” Bargeron replied.
“Ok, have you been drinking tonight?”
“Yeah,” he said.
“Okay, you might want to sober up and try to figure out what address he was at,” the dispatcher told him.
“Are you serious?” Bargeron questioned.
The boy’s mom had already taken him to the emergency room. The Palm Bay man was arrested on New Year’s Day, accused of aggravated child abuse.
Witnesses told police Bargeron was warned he was wrestling with the boy too close to the fire pit, but continued.
“And you guys had a fire there and what happened?” the dispatcher asked.
“No, it wasn’t a fire. I mean, we just had a little fire, no, nothing happened. I mean, he fell into…,” Bargeron said, his comments becoming unintelligible.
Bargeron was taken to jail. Over the weekend, the judge raised Bargeron’s bond from $5,000 to $50,000 after reading the police report.
Other people who were at the party behind the house said it was an accident. Two people who live there are sexual predators and supposed to be under state supervision. Investigators are trying to determine if they violated any terms of their “community supervision” on New Year’s Eve.

    Redneck trailer trash again. Brent must have flipped when he heard about this idiot.

    Being a parent is a gift and if your life is so lame that you have to get drunk around your kids, then you don’t deserve the honor that goes with it. These are the reports that I cringe about when I think that this idiot has the ability to appropriate the human species.

    Really, it’s time to throw some bleach into the gene-pool.
