A woman who got into the wrong side of her car raises a false alarm sending emergency response units into panic.
There are various reasons why one can contact emergency services ranging from an animal on the rooftop to a burglary, whatever the situation, they are ready to respond.
However, there are instances where their response may be withdrawn, especially instances that are misleading. Here is a funny story of how a woman had her emergency response called back when it was discovered that there was actually no emergency.

A woman called the emergency service unit crying in panic about how her car had been broken into, and the thief had made away with most of her vehicle valuables such as her stereo, accelerator among other things.
The dispatcher tried to help the woman and told her,
"Stay Calm, an officer is on his way."
A few minutes after the officer got there, he radioed in telling the emergency service unit to disregard the call as the woman got into the back seat by mistake.
