Mom dies after 911 call treated as prank

Mom dies after 911 call treated as prank: “A 5-year-old boy called 911 to report that his mother had collapsed in their apartment, but an operator told him he should not be playing on the phone, and she died before help arrived.” (Via Newsvine – Get Smarter Here.)

This 911 operator should be fired immediately. Any call of that nature should be taken seriously and investigated rather than assuming the kid was playing. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
