Mom Holds 911 Responsible for Baby Daughter's Death

Mom Holds 911 Responsible for Baby Daughter's Death
Posted August 22nd, 2014 @ 10:43am

A Bronx mother is devastated by the death of her 5-month-old daughter, and blames a mistake by 911 for the tragedy.

Julia Knight found her baby face-down in her crib and not breathing, so she immediately called 911 for help. The dispatcher told her the address Knight was giving her was not a valid address, even though Knight knew it was.

It took the ambulance over 24 minutes to get to her, and it has been confirmed that the emergency crew went to a wrong address before getting to Knight's actual address. EMS crews tried to revive the infant when arriving, but she was pronounced dead.

Knight fully believes that it was this mistake that caused her young daughter to ultimately not make it.
