A nine-year old Canadian boy phoned emergency services to report his mom drinking and driving while he was in the car, authorities have said.
York Regional Police in Ontario said they received a call from the boy, who told them his name, where he was and a description of the vehicle.
The boy “seemed scared”, police said, and his mom got on the telephone, said she only had one drink, and hung up.
His mother’s car was found by authorities then and arrested her.
After the incident the police called the lad “brave” on Twitter.
