In the state of Florida, a teenager called 911 to call for emergency help.
When a law enforcement officer arrived at the scene, it turned out that the boy just wanted to hug him, reports CBS News.
The conversation of law enforcement officer Scott Pracht from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, together with the boy and his mother, was filmed by a camera located on the porch of the house.
In the video, Pracht can be heard asking the woman about the reason for the call, to which she replies that she did not call 911.
She then suggests calling her son, though she assures him that his phone is off and he doesn’t know what 911 is.
When the son comes to the door with a cell phone, when asked if he called the police, he says, “Well, I wanted to hug him“.
“Did you call him for a hug?“– asked the boy’s mother.

When the woman went to check the call history, the boy ran out into the yard and hugged the law enforcement officer.
The man reciprocated, but explained that “911” should be dialed when help is needed.
After that, the schoolboy asked him for forgiveness.
When the child’s mother returned, she confirmed that her son had called for help at 12:41 p.m.
