A toddler received a special visit from cops after he phoned emergency services to invite them over to his house to play with his toys.
New Zealand Police shared audio of the heartwarming phone call to Facebook on Friday afternoon after a four-year-old boy from the country’s South Island wanted to show officers his prized possessions.
‘While we don’t encourage children to call 111 to show us their toys, this was too cute not to share,’ police wrote.
The call began with the child saying: ‘Police Lady?…. Can I tell you something?’
The police dispatcher responded, telling the child he could tell her something.
After a moment of hesitation, the child then says: ‘I’ve got some toys for you… Come over and see them.’
‘You’ve got some toys for me?’ the woman responded.
‘Yep. Come over and see them,’ the boy replied.
The police dispatcher asked where the boy was located before the boy’s father noticed what was occurring and quickly grabbed hold of the phone.
‘Hello, we’ve received a 111 call. I’m guessing it was a mistake, a child making a mistake there?’ the dispatcher said.
The father quickly noted that it was a mistake, and the young boy had been helping out while his mother was sick.
‘I was focussing on the other child and he snuck out,’ the father added.
But shortly after the call, the emergency dispatcher arranged for a surprise visit to the boy’s household.
Constable Kurt visited the four-year-old boy from New Zealand’s South Island after he called police and invited them over to his house to play
Constable Kurt responded to the dispatcher’s call-out and arrived at the child’s house, where he was shown ‘an array of toys’.
‘He did have cool toys!’ Constable Kurt noted.
The lucky boy also got to see the police patrol car and watch the vehicle’s flashing lights.
Police added that the officer ‘had a good educational chat with the child and his parents about only using 111 for emergencies’.
Many individuals commented on the heart-melting moment and commended police on visiting the young boy.
One user wrote: ‘OMG, I’m tearing up again (sniff sniff), that’s so precious.’
‘Absolutely love this how gorgeous! So lovely of the Police to respond to his request!’ wrote another.
While a third said: ‘Awesome guys! You made the kid’s day.’
