An 8-year-old girl was selling water outside of her San Francisco apartment building when she had the police called on her.

Austin told KTVU the woman walked up demanding to see her daughter's permit for selling water around 5:30 or 6:00 p.m. while they were in front of their apartment building near AT&T Park. "She calling the police on an 8-year-old little girl".

Ettel was interviewed by HuffPost, and said the girl was "screaming about what they were selling", and said, "I had been putting up with this for hours, and I just snapped".

The woman later identified as a chemical engineer who received her PhD from Stanford University ended up crying after police told her the supposed "crime" was not very important.

"Yeah, and um, illegally selling water without a permit?" she says into the phone.

When asked why she didn't just close the windows, she said because it was too hot and closing them would not have stopped the noise.

Thanking all who reached out with the messages of encouragement for the girl, she posted a video showing the eight-year-old with a cart full of bottled water.

Ettel says that her problem was with Austin, who she says had been "screaming about what they were selling".

The social media backlash has affected Ettel's business, with at least one distribution company dropping her TreatWell products.

"On my property", the mother said.

As soon as she approaches the woman to film her face, the caller squats behind a wall in a futile attempt to seek a cover. He bought the whole family tickets and reminded the world that there is kindness out there.

"Its not your property", she responds. "Please don't make me sound disgusting", she said, adding she has been receiving threats online and also texts with sexually violent messages. "It was literally nonstop".

Several people online have compared Ettel to the white woman who called police on a black family using a charcoal grill during a barbecue. It was every two seconds, 'Come and buy my water.' It was continuous and it wasn't a soft voice, it was screaming ... "I was completely stressed out at work and that's not an excuse".

The child's mother, Erin Austin, posted the video on her Instagram account. She also said police never even showed up.

She also added the incident left her feeling frightful and heart-wrenched because the girl's mother started yelling at her.
