NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An investigation was underway Thursday night, after a 911 dispatcher allegedly bungled an emergency call that ended with the death of an infant in the Bronx.
Julia Knight, 32, said her 5-month-old daughter, Isabella Glover, was sleeping in bed with her at the Webster Morrisania Houses public housing development in the Bronx last Thursday night.
“The next morning when I got up, my daughter was on her stomach in the pillow,” Knight said. “When I turned her over, she wasn’t breathing.”
Knight called right away 911. She told 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria that she was on the phone with the 911 dispatcher for 24 minutes.
