Kelly Osbourne mistook the sound of a breast pump for a woman choking — hilarity ensued

Kelly Osbourne wants to save your life, even if you aren't remotely in danger. During a recent interview with SheKnows, the 32-year-old television personality, singer and actress recounted an incident when she heard a strange choking noise coming from a bathroom stall and jumped to the rescue — but it turned out that the odd sounds she heard were just coming from a breast pump.

The story came out when Kelly was afraid that her nail drill sounded like a vibrator during the interview.

Kelly Osbourne: Excuse me, by the way, that drill sound that you’re hearing is not a vibrator; it’s a nail drill. I was doing an interview before and I was like, ‘Oh my God, the girl might think I’m a pervert!

SheKnows: Absolutely, my first thought was "vibrator."

KO: Well, people are weird. You never know! I’ve been on the phone and I’m like, 'Wait, are you in the bathroom? Are you taking a shit?’ And they’re like, ‘Oh, I didn’t want to say anything.’ And I’m like, ‘Fuck off, call me back when you’re done!’ It's so weird.

SK: The last person I talked to today was using a breast pump. I didn't know what was happening!

KO: Isn’t that the weirdest sound ever? I thought somebody was choking in the bathroom one time and I tried to break down the door. But it was a poor woman breast-pumping.

It's not the first time that Osbourne has jumped in to help when she thought someone was in trouble. In 2015, the reality star rescued a puppy from a man who was illegally trying to sell the dog to passing cars. In this case, the puppy really did need help.

In any case, we are happy that Kelly Osbourne seemed to be there and ready to jump in and help a stranger in need, even if it turns out it's just a breast pump.
