A four-year-old New Zealand boy who dialed the emergency number to ask police to come and see his toys was surprised with a special visit from an officer following the adorable call.
“Police lady,” he says in the recording. “Can I tell you something? I’ve got some toys for you. Come over and see them.”
A man is then heard on the line explaining to the operator that the boy, who he said was helping out while his mother was sick, had “snuck out” to make the call. Police dispatch then put out a call for any available units to visit the home.
An officer, identified as Constable Kurt, arrived at the house where police said he was shown an “array of toys” and in turn showed the boy the patrol car with the lights on – and gave the child and his parents an “educational chat” about using 111 for emergencies only.
