June 30, 2013 at 4:18 PM

DUNEDIN, New Zealand, June 30 (UPI) -- A New Zealand woman mistakenly glued her lips together and then attempted to call authorities, police said.

Senior Sergeant Steve Aitken said the woman sounded like she was gagging or had a medical condition.

"She could only grunt," Aitken told the Otago Daily Times.

Police reported to her home in Dunedin and found that the 64-year-old woman had mistaken glue for lip cream and had glued her lips together.

She was taken to Dunedin Hospital and has since been released, the Times said.
