I just saw this on CNN, and it made me nauseous. If you can’t turn to 911 in case of a dire emergency, if an operator could utter those words — who else can you turn to? What can we do? And just firing one employee doesn’t quite cut it, in my opinion. I think this reveals a much larger issue within the system.

 

All I can say is, I’m not surprised.
