Woman calls 911 to rescue ‘handmaid’ attempting suicide, turns out to be umbrella


When Casey McCormick saw a person about to potentially jump from the roof of a building, she did what any model citizen would’ve done and called the police.

The person seemed to be cloaked in a red robe and a white bonnet like the characters in Margaret Atwood’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale and the Hulu series. It tells the story of a future dystopian society in which women are forced into sexual servitude by the government in order to repopulate the world.

Fortunately, when NYPD arrived, they discovered that the person was a patio umbrella.

They responded to Casey’s tweet that has gone viral to inform citizens not to reluctant call them if they think there’s an emergency.

Due to recent legislation passing in states like Alabama and Georgia Casey’s concern was warranted. She told the New York Post, “There’s just so much going on it wouldn’t surprise me if someone was taking a stand and it became very scary.”
