5-year-old calls police over Momo challenge

By  | 

CNN, (WILX) - You've probably heard of the Momo challenge, the unnerving image of a woman with bulging eyes and a creepy smile popping up on YouTube telling kids to harm themselves.

While it's all a hoax, the thought is enough to scare kids.

It caused five-year-old Giovanni Pedorza to call police.

"It's not real. And if anybody asks you to do anything like that you always tell your mom and dad," 9-1-1 dispatcher Natalie Gurule told him.

Pedorza got a chance to meet Gurule in person and take a tour of the police station.

Now, he says he wants to be a police officer someday.
