Teen Girl Who Called 911 To Report Her Parents For Forcing Her To Go On Holiday Gets Unxpected Response
As it is usual with kids in the western world, a teenager picked up the phone, called 911 and reported that her 'parents had forced her to go on vacation with them’.
However, the ungrateful girl was left embarassment after she got an unexpected response from the police.
The 15-year year-old, from Mississauga in Canada, complained to cops that her mother and father were taking her to a rented cottage in Trent Hills, Ontario.
Northumberland County police officer Steve Bates told CBC News: “This appeared to be a case of a teenager being a teenager.”
“Although she perceived this as a real issue, it was not an appropriate use of 911.”
But despite the immature nature of the call, authorities still visited the holiday home on the picturesque Trent River and found no “real” emergency.
The teenager was sternly cautioned for misusing the emergency line.
Officer Bates added that flippant 911 calls can potentially divert police away from real emergencies.
He said: “Calls such as this tie up police resources which could impact the safety of others in the community who are in real need of assistance.”
