Newtown Boy Calls NORAD Asking Santa To Bring Extra Presents For ‘The Families That Lost Kids’

While many children are understandably thinking of all the presents they’ll receive for Christmas, one small Newtown resident just wants to help his community. The boy called NORAD’s Santa Tracking hotline and said, “I’m from Newtown, Connecticut, where the shooting was. Is it possible that Santa can bring extra presents so I can deliver them to the families that lost kids?”

Sara Berghoff, the volunteer who fielded the call, was taken off guard. Just 13-years-old herself, Berghoff thought quickly on her feet to answer his question. “If I can get ahold of him, I’ll try to get the message to him,” she said.

1. Why do they have 13 year old kids answering these phone calls?

That seems a little weird.

4. It is not the real NORAD.

It is probably a local line to a news station.

5. At least the operators are not fielding these calls from India.
