Mother dies after 911 call is treated as prank

DETROIT - 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.

The family of Sherrill Turner, 46, does not know whether a swifter response could have saved her life, but relatives want to know why the operator apparently treated the call as if it were a prank.

Why in the world did the operator request the mother to talk on the telephone? How can a collapsed person speak on the phone? Yes, it's crazy; KC said it right: horible. And this operator should be dismissed, perhaps also tried for crime also in the matter.
