The tragedy all happened in Old Bridge, New Jersey when a 7-year old girl named Isabelle LaPeruta accidentally touched her “Elf on the Shelf” after she hit it with a ball and went to pick it up.
Isabelle knows about the book and the story what the Elf on the Shelf saying, “There’s only one rule that you have to follow, so I will come back and be here tomorrow: Please do not touch me. My magic might go, and Santa won’t hear all I’ve seen or I know.”
So when Isabelle picked her fallen Elf up, and while her mom napped, she decided to call 911 because she didn’t want the magic from her Elf to be gone.
Here is what some of the call went like:
911 Operator: Hello?
911 Operator: Hi. Hi, Isabella. Why are you calling 911?
Isabelle knew what 911 was because she panics again telling the 911 operator, “Don’t come to my house! Don’t! I was trying to call my dad and tell him about the accident.”
Since the police have to check out every 911 calls, they made a trip to Isabelle’s house to make sure it was all ok there anyway.
When the police were there, Isabelle’s mom woke up from her nap and went out and caught Isabelle trying to push the police officers out of their house.
Thankfully, the police were understand and they radioed back in the call saying, “Isabella apologized. She touched the Elf on the Shelf. She won’t call 911 again.”
In her interview, Isabelle says only call 911 when it’s an emergency… that goes for everyone besides a 7-year old who touched their Elf on the Shelf too.
