While this dying student was calling out for help, the 911 dispatcher ignored her:
Brittany Zimmerman, a 21-year-old college student who wanted to be a doctor, called 911 as she was being attacked by a stranger, police say. But the police did not come for 48 minutes. By that time, Zimmerman was dead. Her fiance found her body.
Although the dispatcher claimed later to have heard nothing, the 911 tape captured screams, gasps and what sounds like a struggle, according to the court documents.
Zimmerman had been stabbed multiple times in her chest, near her heart. She’d also been beaten and strangled, according to warrants released recently. Zimmerman managed to call 911 at 12:20 p.m. The call was taken by the Dane County 911 center and an internal investigation revealed the dispatcher did not hear any sounds that would signal an emergency.
Because of that, police were not sent to the apartment until 48 minutes after Zimmerman made the call. Her fiance was already there.
These damned 911 dispatchers need to get their sh*t together ASAP. How the f*k can the dispatcher claim he/she didn’t hear anything, yet the tape picked up the sounds of that poor girl getting murdered?? Horrendous.
