NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Fallout from the fire that killed two children in Queens has led to the suspensions of an FDNY supervisor and three dispatchers.
Jai’Launi and Ayina Tinglin were killed after flames broke out at their Far Rockaway home last Saturday. They were both just 4 years old.
A preliminary investigation into the fire revealed that ambulances did not arrive until 21 minutes after the first call to 911, CBS 2 reported.
Investigators said the dispatchers failed to properly notify EMS about the emergency, and that the supervisor didn’t ensure proper coverage.
