(NEWSER) – 'Tis the season for adorable emergencies. NBC New York reports a 7-year-old New Jersey girl called 911 after unintentionally disturbing her family's Elf on the Shelf. And as any Elf on the Shelf owner knows, Elves on the Shelf only have one rule: "Please do not touch me. My magic might go, and Santa won't hear all I've seen or I know."

Well, little Isabelle LaPeruta (also reported as Isabella) didn't have a choice when she threw a ball in the house and turned hers into an Elf on the Floor. One police officer would later say Isabelle was terrified she was "going to ruin Christmas." So Isabelle called 911.
