This is a terrible development in an already tragic story. A family traveling on the Baltimore Washington Parkway stopped to change a flat tire late at night last week. The father, Rick Warren, was tragically struck and killed by a passing car just as he was finishing up the tire swap. His fiance was also hit, though she has survived.
The daughter frantically called 911 from the back seat as she watched two of her family members dying on the side of the road. The 911 dispatcher seemed very cold in his attempts to get information from her, even telling her to "Stop whining". Someone from the fire department has defended the 911 operator saying that he was only trying to get the correct info and that it was difficult for him to understand what the girl was saying.
The 911 call has been released. You can judge for yourself if his reasoning is valid, but I suspect you will think that he was just being a dick.
