Woman Calls Police About Missing Snowman
Arctic blizzards recently swept across the United Kingdom, causing several emergency calls to the police station. According to Reuters, one strange call the police received regarded a woman’s snowman. The woman caller said, “I haven't been out to check on him for five hours but I went outside for a cigarette and he’s gone.” When the operator asked who had gone she replied: “My snowman. I thought that with it being icy and there not being anybody about he’d be safe.” A transcript of the call was released by the force to highlight what they said was misuse of the emergency number 999 system.
