A peculiar report had the police responding to a home in the Zuid-Holland community of Rijnsburg on Wednesday night. The resident reported hearing "moaning and gasping" in his home, but couldn't figure out where it came from, Omroep West reports.

The officer in the police call center could also hear the strange noises through the telephone. Officers were dispatched to the home on Oegstgeesterweg. In the meantime the resident and his neighbor walked through the home searching for the source of the noises. Earlier they clearly heard it come from the kitchen.

A houseboat on Oegstgeesterweg in Leiden is sinking due to a leak. Despite enormous effort by the fire department, the house boat can not be saved, the fire brigade said on Twitter on Monday morning. The family living in the houseboat got out unharmed, NU.nl reports.

The fire department started pumping water out of the houseboat around 5:50 a.m. on Monday. But the water put so much pressure on the houseboat that the shore anchor broke, making the houseboat unstable.
