FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — It sounds like a scene from a Poltergeist movie. A house in Massachusetts, getting ravaged by water from a leaky pipe, managed to call for help on its own.
Police got a 911 hang-up call Wednesday and when they called back they just got static.
So officers headed out, they made a forced entry and found a total mess.
Wood floors were buckled, ceilings were sagging, the basement was filled with five feet of water and potentially toxic mold was growing all over the place.
It appears the water short-circuited the phone system, triggering a 911 call.
