Dispatcher Hangs Up on a Caller While She’s Trying to Get Help for a Teen Who’s Shot

761

On June 26th a frantic female called the Albuquerque Fire Department in an attempt to get some help for a 17-year-old high school athlete who was shot. During the conversation with the dispatcher, the female tried to keep the boy alive. She told the dispatcher that he was barely breathing. The dispatcher then asked her the same question again and her frustration led to her using a curse word.

The dispatcher then responded by saying, “I’m not going to deal with this,” before abruptly ending the call. The teen eventually died. His name was Jaydon Chaves-Silver.

The dispatcher, whose name is Matthew Sanchez, was reassigned when officials heard about the call.
