Boy calls 911 after getting snow pants for Christmas

A 7-year-old boy in Canada “just got added to the naughty list” for Christmas next year, according to police.

Cops say the child called 911 on Tuesday morning at around 8 a.m. to complain about one of his presents.

He had gotten some snow pants and wanted to let authorities know that they were “not appreciated.”

Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Kerry Schmidt later tweeted about the incident and spoke to reporters about the importance of treating 911 seriously.

“Parents or caregivers need to make sure their children understand the consequences of calling 911 and what constitutes an emergency,” he told CTV News. “Kids need to realize that calling 911 is critical and serious. We don’t want to waste resources going after calls that aren’t an emergency.”

Schmidt said the boy was later given a talking to.
