People hear a private chat - level 2
Two members of the Winnipeg Police Service were on a routine patrol over the Canadian city. They were in a helicopter and accidentally activated the aircraft’s public address system. To say the least, what the public heard on the ground was interesting.
Some people took to Twitter to describe the experience. One tweet said: “That moment when you realise that you left the microphone on while you’re having an X-rated conversation in a police helicopter.”
The Winnipeg Police said that the officers could not hear the public address system from the helicopter, and apologised to all members of the public.
Difficult words: patrol (a trip when you look if everything’s OK), public address system (a powerful sound system which lets you talk to a lot of people), X-rated (private; only for people who are over the age of 18 or 21).
