Furthering the theory that toddlers are shrunken drunk adults, a South Carolina two-year-old called 911 when she needed help getting her pants up, then asked the officer who answered the call for a hug.

ABC News reports that Greenville County's Deputy Martha Lohnes rushed to the scene of the pants emergency to find a tiny human struggling to get dressed. Lohnes pulled her pants up to her waist, then obliged when the girl asked her to pick her up for a hug. A family member was home at the time, but this was a job for the law.
