Most people dial 911 because they are a victim of a crime or accident, however, one Quebec woman thought it was appropriate to enlist the help of emergency services after an unsuccessful trip to the casino.
According to Global News, the 21-year-old woman was visiting the Shoreline Casino Thousand Islands this past weekend when she lost all of her money while she gambled there. Instead of calling family or friends for help, she apparently thought the predicament she found herself in required police assistance. The Leeds and Thousand Islands Township provincial police received a phone call in the wee hours of Saturday morning from the young lady asking for help.
The woman told police in the 5am call that she needed help getting home from the Gananoque, Ontario casino after having lost all her money there gambling. Before police could arrive on the scene, the woman called the station back. Apparently, she had been given $20 by someone at the casino and was now able to get home on her own.
Officers spoke with the security of the casino to ensure the woman was safe and did not need their help. According to Const. Sandra Barr, the police officers often receive non-emergency calls, but she could not recall ever receiving a call such as this from a casino.
