Why Aren't 911 Calls Answered In NYC Anymore?

From the Daily News:

An intern for City Councilwoman Diana Reyna waited about 30 minutes for an ambulance Tuesday — after the teen passed out during a press conference with Council Speaker Christine Quinn in Brooklyn.

Quinn was speaking before cameras about the reopening of the controversial E. 91st St. marine transfer station when the 17-year-old girl suddenly dropped to the ground in front of the crowd shortly before noon, witnesses said.

They quickly pulled the girl into the shade under a tent as Quinn's security guard grabbed an oxygen tank to help the teen breathe.

But Quinn finally lost her patience after waiting about 30 minutes for an ambulance to arrive and dialed NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly for help.

Quinn's calling Kelly finally got an FDNY truck and ambulance to the scene.

Remember the old days, when 911 calls used to get answered in a timely fashion?

I do - bu not in Mike Bloomberg's New York.

You want an ambulance?

Better have Ray Kelly's private number or your out of luck.
