MINNEAPOLIS  — A woman called 911 in the middle of the night in Minneapolis and an operator picked up five states away. It happened to Faye Lewis last month when she made the emergency call from her cell phone.

“I have no idea how that even happens,” she said. After a busy night at her bar job, Lewis made it back to her apartment in Minneapolis.

“A few minutes after I got in, there was pounding on my door and someone trying to jiggle my door handle,” she said.
