Chilling Carjacking 911 Calls Show Ambulance Delay
Calls made to 911 and police on the night a young lawyer was killed in a carjacking outside an upscale New Jersey reveal that it may have taken an ambulance 30 minutes to get to the victim, according to a published report.
In the recordings obtained Monday by The Star-Ledger, Jamie Schare Friedland can be heard screaming at a 911 dispatcher.
“Yes this is an emergency. I’m at the Short Hills mall parking lot. My husband has been shot,” Friedland screams after a dispatcher answers her call. “We called an ambulance a half an hour ago where is it?”
Millburn police tell the newspaper the ambulance arrived at the mall 18 minutes after the shooting, but had trouble getting to the scene because it couldn’t fit below a low ceiling at the parking deck entrance.
