GREENVILLE, S.C. (WYFF) – A wardrobe malfunction prompted a South Carolina toddler to call 911 for help.

Two-year-old Aaliyah was struggling to get dressed last week when she decided to ask for help.

“I’ve always taught her to call 911 if you need help, and I didn’t know she was going to take it to that extent,” says her mother, Pebbles Ryan.

Deputy Martha Lohnes was in the vicinity of the home and met the girl at the front door. Lohnes said the girl’s pants weren’t quite up to her waist and she said she couldn’t get them on.

Lohnes said she helped the little girl put her pants on. After that, the deputy said the little girl asked Lohnes to pick her up and hug her. Lohnes called that the best part of her shift. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
