A 911 dispatcher in Indiana has been placed on leave after she didn’t send help for a man who had fainted at the gym.

Clement Ervin passed out from dehydration at a gym in Gary back in May. When his friend called 911, the dispatcher told him, “We don’t have any medics, so it’s going to be a minute.”

His friend replied, “Let me try to take him to the hospital then.”

The gym is located across the street from a fire station, which could have sent firefighters to the scene. But officials say that the dispatcher did not transfer the call.

ABC7 Chicago reported that a man died of a heart attack at a Gary church back in June following a mishandled 911 call.

Ervin, who survived his fainting spell, said he now wants to raise awareness about poorly handled emergency calls.
