Did the Amber Alert earlier this week wake you too? Did you feel compelled to call 911 about it?
Niagara Regional Police have released the audio from a 911 call made on Tuesday, followin an Amber Alert out of Sudbury. The Police Service says it received over 10 complaint calls because of the alert sounding on peoples’ phones around 5am, despite knowing there was a 3-year-old child out there that could have been in serous trouble.
Listen to the call for yourself.
911 is intended for emergencies only. Calling to complain about an #AmberAlert ties up precious resources for others who may need help. We received 10+ complaint calls over yesterday's alert for a 3 year old child believed to be in imminent danger. #AmberAlertWorks pic.twitter.com/04aLkAyyw5— NRPS (@NiagRegPolice) May 15, 2019
