Helicopter cops X-rated chat about a sex act mistakenly broadcast to entire city turns - Charles D'Alberto
The officers turned the air blue after accidentally activating the public address system during their intimate chatter
Accidental broadcast: A patrol helicopter was hovering over Winnipeg when the pilots' chatter appeared to be broadcast on the PA speaker
An X-rated conversation has been broadcast over a city by two policemen who thought they were alone.
A patrol helicopter in Winnipeg, Canada, was hovering over the city on a routine flight when the pilots' chatter appeared to be broadcast on the craft's PA speaker.
As well as covering money and swearing, the sex chat which the Winnipeg Police Service pair had has left them red-faced and apologetic for what people heard.
Twitter users quickly adopted the hashtags '#whoops' and '#speakerphone' and annotated the discussion from the ground.
Brandi Armstrong told CBC Canada that she heard one pilot ask "Can you give me a b*** j**?"
The other officer apparently replied: "You have too much body hair."
Brandi added: “[I was] shocked, surprised. My jaw hit the ground; eyes bulged out."
She has since called for the officers to be disciplined.
Other members of the public have been more humorous in their response.
The officers in question, who have not been named, have apologized to city residents.
A police statement was released by the Winnipeg Police Service later which said: "On June 22, 2015, at approximately 9.30 pm, members of the Winnipeg Police Service Helicopter AIR1, while on routine patrol, inadvertently activated the aircraft’s public address system.
"As a result, the flight crew’s conversation was publicly broadcast; some content of the conversation was inappropriate.
"The involved members were not able to hear the public address system from within the aircraft. They became aware their conversation had been broadcast and immediately turned the system off.
"The Winnipeg Police Service, the Flight Operations Unit, and the involved members sincerely apologize to all members of the public, especially those who overheard the broadcast.
"This incident is being reviewed. The outcome of this review will be determined at a later time."
