It's not just the NZ media who make stuff up.  Found this picture on nos.nl, the Dutch public broadcaster, reporting on the Christchurch shooting.  Apparently it's a New Zealand police car.

DarthKermit: Yeah, 000 is our emergency number, ain't it?

 

Australia only.

 

I had been in Australia for 29½ years when I had to dial the emergency services for an ambulance for the very first time. Realising this was a real medical emergency affecting my partner and being pumped with adrenaline & emotion, muscle memory kicked in and I dialled 111. That is how well it was drilled into me as a Kiwi kid. Even stranger still I was still a practising hospital nurse at time and I never lost it in that environment. It is wonder I did not dial 444 which was the hospital internal emergency number.

"Christchurch in lockdown, so my brother had to fetch us from the airport to bring us here to be able to bring you this report" - Mike.

 

Yet he's standing less than a 10min walk of the airport, here: https://goo.gl/maps/8Aqyxw76Jxy  

 

Bonus: Caption says Hagley Park.

 

 

Very insensitive to the victims and their families to be so cavalier about exaggerating his connection to create a story.

And the benefit to the viewers of a talking head being "at the scene" is what exactly?
