1977: Convicted murderer Gary Gilmore is executed by a firing squad in Utah, ending a nearly 10-year moratorium on capital punishment in the United States.

A man who was in the process of being booked into a Florida jail used his one phone call to dial 911 for help.

According to the Palm Bay Daily, Trevon Malik Syndab,19, was arrested on burglary and resisting arrest charges and brought to the Brevard County Jail. When officers extended the opportunity to call someone, he decided to call 911 and ask for help.

Police added another charge of misusing the 911 service.
