Siri Prank Has Bradford Man Explaining Errant 911 Call

Online Prank Has Users Saying Keywords Leading to Emergency Call

A Bradford man may be givingĀ  a second thought to anything he says to Siri.

The fella was forced to explain himself to police the other day, who came knocking after he inadvertently called 911.

South Simcoe Police say an online prank involves saying a particular phrase to the apple digital assistant, that phrase apparently causes the device to call 911 for you.

“When lives are at risk, we cannot afford to tie up a 911 line. 911 is for real emergencies. Not jokes and pranks,” said Deputy Chief Robin McElary-Downer.

It’s said this prank is popping up on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
