When Isabelle LaPeruta, a 7-year-old New Jersey girl, accidentally touched her Elf on the Shelf she thought she did something that would get her in trouble with Santa. According to the popular children's book, touching the Elf on a Shelf is a big time no-no and doing so means the Christmas magic goes away from your home.

Panicked that she just ruined Christmas, Isabelle did what she was told to do in an emergency, call 911.

"To her, it was an emergency when she touched the elf, and she's going to ruin Christmas, so that was her emergency. In her mind, she did right, and it was fine with us." said Old Bridge Police Lt. Joseph Mandola. Looks like the Christmas magic is back for one 7-year-old little girl.
