SEAL BEACH, Calif., June 28 (UPI) -- A California father said his 11-year-old son tried to enter a Cartoon Network contest and a single digit dialing error took him to a phone sex line.

The Seal Beach father, an employee of The Orange County (Calif.) Register, said his son, Nico Collins, dialed after the number flashed on the screen at 8:15 p.m. Monday but he accidentally dialed 1-800-556-1600 instead of 1-800-566-1600 and heard a recording of a female voice tell him to dial a second number, the Register reported Tuesday.

"Hey there sexy guy," a female voice said when Nico called the second number. "Welcome to an exciting new way to go live one-on-one with hot, horny girls waiting right now to talk to you."

The father said the call was on speakerphone and he quickly told the boy to hang up.

"It was a kind of embarrassing thing," said Nico, who was trying to win a trip to the Bahamas for his family.

The father said he explained the situation to AT&T and he will not be charged for the calls.
