5-yr-old Nathan Mays was visiting Walmart on December 6, 2017, when he started playing with the decorations.
He was accompanied by his mother, Jana, and his older sister, Tia.
They were in the store’s Christmas decorations section, where a group of boys were playing with toy trains.
Nathan began to cry when he saw the Christmas decorations and started to get excited about playing with them, Tania said.
He started touching the train cars, and the boys kept asking him to touch them, and he kept touching them.
The boys continued asking him, “Can you get that thing to move?”
Tania was able to grab the train car and tug it, and it started moving.
Then Nathan started getting more excited.
Tania called 911.
The children had been playing with trains for about 10 minutes, and they were playing on the train with a little bit of a distance, Tanias mother said.
The kids had started crying.
The 911 operator told the children to keep playing.
At some point, a child in the backseat began to yell, “Get him off the train!”
The boys started pulling at the train to get the toy train to move, but the train continued to move.
Tanios mother said she felt that the boy must have been scared or frustrated, and she asked him if he could stop.
“I said, ‘No, no, no,'” Tania told the 911 dispatcher.
“So he kept pulling at it.”
At one point, the boy was pushing the train, but Tania grabbed the train and pulled it away from him.
“He didn’t get off the track, but he was getting excited,” Tania explained.
The boy then tried to grab another toy train and try to get off of it.
“That’s when he pushed the train onto the other train,” Tani says.
“And I was like, ‘He’s going to hit me.’
He started hitting me.”
Nathan Mains hands started moving when he heard the children yell “Get on the track!”
“I didn’t see what was happening, but I saw him pull up on the other toy train, and I was really scared,” Tia said.
“At that point, I was worried about him getting hurt or hurt myself.
So I grabbed him and pulled him back.”
The boys were scared and started hitting the toy trains and touching the trains, Tiamas mother explained.
Tiams mother then tried calling 911, but it was too late.
“By that time, I had already run out of time,” Tiam says.
When the dispatcher told the boys to stop touching the toys, they continued.
Tianas mother then called 911 again, and another 911 operator said, “We can’t do anything, we have to stop.”
The operator then said, “‘It’s a matter of life or death.'”
The 911 dispatcher said, “[You] have to get Nathan off the toy track.
He has autism.”
The dispatcher told Tianis mother that they couldn’t do much, but she told the operator that she was going to call 911.
She called 911 and said that they were going to do everything possible to get him off of the toy tracks.
“It’s just a matter if I can do it or not,” Tian says.
The operator told her that he was just going to stop them.
Tiana was not able to do anything until the dispatcher called her back.
She said she was scared, but not sure what to do.
The dispatcher then told her, “I’m sorry, but you have to pull him off that train.”
Tian said that she asked the operator what he meant, and when the operator explained that the boys were still playing, she began to panic.
The next day, the operator said that it was all right.
“They told me, ‘We can pull you off the tracks if you just stop,’ and that was all that they told me,” Tiana said.
Tia and her husband started calling 911 when they heard that the children were being hit on the trains.
“All we wanted was for them to stop, stop, get off that track, because it was upsetting, and then I knew they were just kids,” Tiah said.
At the time, Tiah was able only to grab one toy train.
She was able pull it off the ground and onto another train, where the boy got off of one train and ran off onto the second.
The family called 911, and a dispatcher told them that Nathan had been hit.
“Nathan was trying to get out of the way, and that’s when the police came,” Tiales mother said, explaining that Tiah ran up to the police officer.
The officer told Tiah that she had to pull her son off the railroad, and Tiah complied.
“She was screaming at me and saying, ‘
