Firefighter Who Hung Up on Frantic 911 Caller Resigns

According to media reports, an Albuquerque, New Mexico firefighter who hung up on a frantic 911 caller attempting to save the life of a 17-year-old gunshot victim has resigned.
The firefighter, Matthew Sanchez, was working in the city’s dispatch center when he received a call from a woman who said her friend was "dying." The firefighter hung up after the woman snapped at him, saying: “I’m not going to deal with this, OK?”
The shooting happened as about 10 teenagers had gathered at a house in a south-eastern neighborhood of the city, around 10 p.m. on June 26th. Police estimated that suspects shot five times at the house, one of which hit 17-year-old Jaydon Chavez-Silver, a senior at Manzano high school.
