STATES CHRONICLE – An emergency 911 call was made on the evening of June 29th in Renton, Washington. The caller, a 75-year-old man who resides in the area, asked the police for help.
The man, who after the event requested to remain anonymous, told the emergency operator that he had survived a plane crash in a field with trees. The recording has the man saying that he found himself pinned in. Additionally, the man saw three other unconscious passengers in the wreckage.
Emergency personnel, police and firefighters, rushed to the scene
The emergency call operator quickly traced the call and sent emergency personnel to the location of the trace. Renton police and firefighters arrived at a home in the area. They found the 75-year-old man who had made the call inside the premises. The man was in his bed.
The 911-caller found himself in the unpleasant and embarrassing situation of realizing that the entire plane crash had been a very vivid dream hallucination but that the 911 call had been real.
The man said that he recently underwent surgery. He had encountered issues with sleeping at night ever since the surgery. Concerned for his wellbeing, his daughter gave him half a pill of Ambien.
Ambien is a very potent drug used for insomnia. It is meant to be used by individuals who are overworked and overstressed.
The sedative developers insist that the drug was perfectly safe and that it has decades of a clean track record. This event, however, is not the first odd happening related to Ambien. People have reported accounts of sleep eating and even sleep driving. It has yet to be revealed if the drug does risk having the rare chance of causing unexpected hallucinatory side effects or if several people just happened to blame the same drug by coincidence.
The man said he will never take the drug again in his life. He referred to the vivid hallucination as a terrible experience.
While on location, emergency personnel did make sure that the 75-year-old man was alright and that he was in no risk of further hallucinations. They then left the man in his home. Apart from his word, there was no further way of telling if the man did, in fact, take half of the dosage as stated or more, or even if he mixed the sedative with alcohol or other drugs.
