Parents no longer talking to daughter after 'son who's been dead for six months' rings them up

Parents no longer talking to daughter after 'son who's been dead for six months' rings them up

The parents were left in shock after their 'son who's been dead for six months' rang them up.

A pair of parents - whose son rang them up after being 'dead for six months' - are now no longer talking to their daughter.

If you think that sounds like an absolute s**t show, then you have no idea how wild the story of this 'dead' son actually is.

A New Zealander named Callum shocked listeners back in 2021 after he rang up ZM Radio to reveal how his parents thought he had risen from the dead. Listen below:

It all started when ZM Radio was doing a random segment for listeners to ask if they had ever been presumed dead.

Along came a bloke named Callum, who left Carl Fletcher, Vaughan Smith and Hayley Sproull utterly shellshocked.

"Yes, I definitely have been presumed dead, mate," he explained.

"My sisters were in a bit of a tiff with my parents at the time and they weren't really getting along.

"I was living in Wellington while they were in Christchurch. My older sister actually called my parents up and told them that I had died."

It gets even crazier as he revealed that his sisters told his parents that he had been stabbed to death.

The radio hosts were visibly stunned by Callum's story.

Vaughan said: “Wait wait wait, you were murdered?

“You’re not dead in an accident by your own hand, someone murdered you! This is the wildest phone call we’ve ever had.

“Were you the sort of person who would have been stabbed?”

“I was not in some gangs but I will say, at the point in time, it wouldn’t have been un-peculiar for me to get stabbed,” Callum said.

Explaining why he decided to ring his parents in the first place, Callum added: “And then I was like wait – I haven’t heard from my parents in a while, I wonder what’s going on?

“And I gave them a call-up and my mum and dad are like ‘you’re alive?’

“My mum was absolutely in tears and my dad was just kind of gobsmacked – he was just like ‘what the f**k is going on?'”

Vaughan chimed in: “What! I’m going to say this in the nicest possible way Callum… your sister sounds like a crazy b***h.

“No offence. Your sister sounds like a top level, red flag, crazy b***h!”

The sisters also apparently told the parents that the funeral had already taken place and they hadn’t been invited because his ex-girlfriend’s mum and dad 'didn’t want them there'.

Callum concluded that his parents no longer have a relationship with his sisters.

Can you blame them?
