Police in Amsterdam mistakenly kicked in the door of a opera singer after confusing singing with screaming.
Residents dialled emergency to report that a man was screaming very loud.
The Amsterdam Police quickly responded to reports of “terrifying screams” coming from the home in the Zuid-Buitenveldert district.
Netherlands Times reported that police confirmed what they believed to be screams of agony when they arrived and began to knock on the door of the opera singer’s home.
The singer did not hear the knocks and was unaware anyone was at the door until it was kicked in. Police found him singing along to a song while wearing headphones.
“In the end, the [police] colleagues, the tipster and the resident had a real laugh about the incident,” police said.
