EMT Makes Fake 911 Call Because He Didn’t “Feel Like”Driving That Far!
William Medina(New York, NY) -- An EMT is facing charges after he faked a 911 call in order to avoid leaving Queens. Prosecutors say William Medina had just transported a patient on August 19, when his ambulance was dispatched to Brooklyn to respond to a call of a sick child. Not wanting to travel to Brooklyn, the 27-year-old went to a payphone and placed a phony call about a man suffering a heart attack in Jackson Heights. Medina's unit ended up responding to another call in Queens anyway, while another unit found nothing at the address Medina had called in. Authorities later found surveillance video of Medina getting out of his ambulance to make the call.
