"Mayday" is a word that is more commonly used in the seas or aerial transportation, when one is facing a dangerous situation, such as the destruction of the ship of the plane.
"Mayday" is a word of French origin, meaning "help me", and from your perspective, I have to say that the person who said it probably was in a really stressful/dangerous situation, and needed help. Additionally, he had probably misunderstood the word usage.
Hope that helped.
