    You call IX-II and the Operator tells you to get off the phone and quit playing games.....

    Wrongful Death Suit Planned After Boy's 911 Call Ignored
    Mother Died After Boy Called For Help

    POSTED: 9:41 am EDT April 10, 2006

    DETROIT -- A prominent lawyer said he plans to file a lawsuit over the death of a Detroit woman whose young son was unable to convince a 911 operator his mother needed help.

    Geoffrey Fieger said 46-year-old Sherrill Turner, who had an enlarged heart, would have survived if help had been sent immediately.

    After Turner collapsed, Robert placed two calls to 911. In the first call, Robert said his mother had passed out, but an operator asked to speak with an adult.

    Robert Turner called 911 to get help for his mother, whom he found lying unconscious on the kitchen floor of their Detroit apartment in February, the station reported.

    "Then I had felt her tummy. She wasn't breathing. Then I had called 911," said Robert. "I told them to send an emergency truck right now."

    911 Operator: "911. What's the problem?"

    Robert: "My mom has passed out."

    The 911 operator, however, did not take him seriously and told him to stop playing on the phone, the station reported.

    911 Operator: "Where's the grownups at?"

    Robert: (Inaudible)

    911 Operator: "Let me speak to her before I send the police over there."

    "I tried to tell them she wouldn't talk," said Robert.

    Robert: (Inaudible)

    911 Operator: "I don't care. You shouldn't be playing on the phone. Now put her on the phone before I send the police out there to knock on the door and you gonna be in trouble."

    Robert: "Ugh!" (Hangs up.)

    Police arrived after the second call. But Sherrill Turner was dead.

    Fieger, best known for defending assisted-suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian, appeared on morning talk shows with the boy, Robert Turner, who turned 6 last month.

    Default not good

    This is not going to go good for the emergency operator. They teach the kids in schools today all about dialing 911 for help and this happens. All calls should be taken seriously.

    Actually if you look at the time index of which original post was made first..... but who's counting semantics, right?
