A Canadian woman called the emergency services after mistaking her neighbour’s noisy toilet efforts for a violent disturbance.
The woman, of Victoria in British Columbia, was worried her neighbour was in trouble after hearing a lengthy bout of loud yelling and shouting.
She heard the noises coming from the man’s basement at about 5am and dialled 911, reports The Province.
Deputy police chief John Ducker said officers rushed to the scene to check on the unidentified man’s well-being.
After banging on the door of the apartment for several minutes, the unharmed man finally answered the door.
“When questioned about the amount of noise he was making, the man explained that he had been essentially on the toilet having his morning constitutional but he was done now,” explained deputy chief Ducker.
“The officers asked him to try to keep the noise down in such future endeavours and he said he would do his best.”
