People Hear a Private Chat – level 3

09-04-2020 15:00

Two unfortunate members of the Winnipeg Police Service helicopter Air One were on routine patrol over the Canadian city when they inadvertently activated the aircraft’s public address system.

The content of their conversation was lewd, with some people taking to Twitter to describe the experience. The Winnipeg Police said in a statement that officers could not hear the public address system from inside the chopper and sincerely apologised to all members of the public.

Difficult words: patrol (watch), inadvertently (accidentally), public address (when you talk to many people at one time over a very loud speaker), lewd (inappropriate), chopper (helicopter), sincerely (honestly).
