Lincoln Park, (WXYZ) -- You need help in a hurry...you know what to do: grab the phone and dial 911. But what if nobody answered? Or, what if they answered, refused to send help and repeatedly hung up the phone?
In the Downriver city of Lincoln Park, citizens call 9-1-1 over 14,000 times each year, and let’s make it clear right up front: those emergency calls are generally well handled…
Adrainne Ledesma: "I was really scared because, you know, it’s my dad and he fell. He’s not supposed to fall like that."
His fall was so frightening because he was just three weeks out of the hospital where he underwent brain surgery and suddenly, he’s on the kitchen floor, unconscious and shaking with a severe seizure.
While the phone was still ringing, the girl said "what the fuck." Apparently 911 calls are recorded even while the phone is ringing, so the police officer heard her say it.
When the officer answered the call, he was only interested in what the girl said and wouldn't help the her. Instead, he swears back at her and hangs up.
After the girl places several more calls to 911 trying to get help the officer finally called the fire department with a fabricated version of what happened.
Eventually, the girl gets arrested and jailed by the police for a crime that isn't even on the books.
