Woman calls 911 after losing money from gambling at casino

Tags: 911, Canada.
Posted on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 by "T".

Police in Leeds, Ontario, Canada are reminding the public yet again that 911 must only be reserved for emergencies after a woman called the help line over the weekend about her losing money from gambling at a casino.

Leeds provincial police and the Thousand Islands Township say that they received a call at about 5 a.m. on April 7, Saturday, from a woman who had been gambling at the Shoreline Casino Thousand Islands.
The unnamed 21-year-old woman from Quebec told officers that she had lost all her money from after gambling and that she needed help getting home.

Prior to the police arriving at the casino, the woman then called back to say somebody gave her $20 and so she no longer needed their assistance.

Const. Sandra Barr said police officers had confirmed with casino security that the woman did not need police assistance and was safe.

Barr said it's the very first time that they got a call of this kind from a casino, even though police frequently receive calls about non-emergency situations.

Top 10 ridiculous reasons people called 911 in 2016
E-Comm, the biggest 911 call center in BC, Canada, handles over 1.3 million calls each year, and while most of them are indeed about emergencies and life-threatening situations, there are times they get a call about nonsense circumstances, putting lives at risk.

Here are the top 10 calls they got in 2016:

1. Requesting help opening a broken gym locker
2. Enquiring about job opportunities for a family member interested in police work
3. Because an electric shaver would not turn off
4. Requesting a ladder to get a soccer ball off the roof
5. How best to get a drone down from a tree
6. Tired of waiting in traffic
7. "There's a big spider in the bathroom"
8. Complaining they couldn't get into a nightclub
9. Because their teenager refused to do chores
10. "Can you tell me what time it is?"

There are consequences for misusing 911 in the United States
In December of last year, Nelson Agosto, a Florida man got in trouble after misusing 911 twice, to complain about the size of the meal served to him at Crabby's Seafood Shack in Stuart.

As a result of his actions, the 51-year-old man was charged with misusing the emergency 911 hotline and was arrested.

Police stated that Mr. Agosto complained the clams he was eating were so small that he didn't want to pay for them. In a 911 call released by the police department, Agosto told the dispatcher, "I ordered something, and it was extremely so small."

The dispatcher instructed Agosto to call a non-emergency line, but he told police he forgot the number for that. He was luckily not sent to jail and has appeared in court this January.

these cases must be taken seriously because are people with the same kind of medical problems. Some suffer from psychological, anxious or behavioral disorders. The police should consider these issues and to proceed normally. Unfortunately, some abuse and people suffer because of them. There are also false calls that are not good at all.

Yes some stupid reasons to call police, I think this is bad thing people are doing and there must be some money to pay from person who calls pokice for stupid reason because they spend time to analyze situation and not soend time on serous crimes

when I lost $ 500 in PartiPoker for half a day I was also ready to call 911 ... in Russia 112 .... it's certainly a lot of stress when you lose a lot of money and you realize that they can not be returned ... but you could not just play but simply pick up the winnings .... so I understand it ... sad event

and an unusual connection because it was sensible for the woman to call to cancel the request because she should not do it since she could be barring a real emergency call, however I think it's very funny that everything would not do such a thing ehhhhh

Next time she should just call an Uber. Since it is purely cashless transaction if she does not have money on her decbit/credit card left the driver only going to know it after bringing her home. So either way she will have a ride.

That was a nice and funny list Smile
And i bet there is one such list in every country.
They must be hearing lots of non sense all the ones working in the call centres
and not only.
But then again in USA it says to serve and protect, so she needed a lift home Smile

I do like to read these sorts of crazy stories and it never fails to amaze me what people do. I do feel sorry for her for losing all her money but that is the chance you take

 Gerimantas4/13/2018 6:39:46 AM GMT
Ha ha pochui you are a funny person 20 follars for a quick oral Tongue but I still think this is situation where this girl must respond for such silly action from her, because pokice has n o time for going to such situations or even to respond and talk about it, there are more important crimes

it would be better for her to do that and to earn 20 $ on that way,then to get penalty now from police,because of this stupid call!but she is young,only 21 years and maybe she will learn her lesson after this!who know...

I think it's just about a woman with anxiety or mental health problems.

People make an emergency call for ridiculous reasons. Abuse of emergency line leads to a waste of precious time and limited resources. People should call emergency number only in situations requiring immediate attention.
 Calmplay4/15/2018 1:30:36 PM GMT
Unbelievable those reasons why they called the emergencies, how the hell can someone call to ask for what time is it. Unless it was a prank call or someone drunk?

 godoy4/16/2018 12:37:56 AM GMT
