Basel City police chase down tram to find lost phone
A story of police going above and beyond over New Year has emerged.
Basel City police released details yesterday how they helped a man who’d left his phone on a tram on New Year’s Eve.
The man realized he’d left the phone as soon as he’d got off. He chased it for two stops and then came across a police car. He asked the officers if they could call the public transport company – as he didn’t have a phone.
The officers decided it would be faster to stop the tram. Using lights and sirens the police car caught up with the tram and the man got his phone back.
Social media is full of praise for the helpful attitude of the force.
