Outrageous LISTEN: 911 Dispatcher Tells Girl to 'Deal With It Yourself' After Friend Gets Shot
An Albuquerque 911 dispatcher is coming under fire for hanging up on a caller who was pleading for help following a shooting at a party.
The girl was desperately trying to get paramedics to the scene after her friend, Jaydon Chavez-Silver was shot on June 26.
During the 911 call, dispatcher Matthew Sanchez asked, "Is he not breathing?"
The girl replied, "Barely. Stay with me. Stay with me, ok? Good job, Jaydon."
Sanchez then asked the girl again if the teen was breathing.
She replied, "He's barely breathing. How many times do I have to f---ing tell you?"
That's when Sanchez told the girl, "You can deal with it yourself. I'm not going to deal with this, ok?"
The girl pleaded with Sanchez, telling him that her friend was going to die, but Sanchez apparently hung up.
Chavez-Silver, a soon-to-be high school senior, was eventually taken to a hospital, but died a short time later.
Sanchez has been removed from the Albuquerque Fire Department and placed on an "administrative assignment."
“After learning of the alleged misconduct, Driver Matthew Sanchez was immediately removed from the dispatch center and placed on administrative assignment. An internal investigation has been initiated. As the Chief of the department, I am taking the allegation very seriously," AFD Chief David Downey told KOB.
Police have not made any arrests in the murder case.
