DETROIT, Michigan (AP) -- A lawyer said he plans a lawsuit over the death of a woman whose young son called 911 to report she had collapsed, only to be told he shouldn't be playing on the phone.

Reminds me of that commercial with that girl calling 911. "Help my mom stopped breathing".

Perhaps the boy wasn't "screaming" or "crying" when he was calling 911. Maybe that's why they didnt take him seriously (as well as being 6)

This is very sad. And to think... this is all because some idiot thought he was playing.

In order to make it through the world one needs some insanity.

He should be sent to prison. Much worse. Don't just sue the state. The boy lost his mother!

Sent to jail for that? Maybe fired...but not sent to jail.

The sad part is that the police not showing up isn't all that uncommon in Detroit. =/

When I was around...11...my younger bro and I prank called 911 and the first call had the police at our house. Whatever happened to those days? X_X

I heard this on the radio this morning. It was disgusting.  The kid was in obvious distress (though not hysterical). The fact that she WOULD be alive right now if somebody competant had answered the phone just disgusts me. I almost think she should be sent to jail.

That's really sad. I wonder why she didn't take it so seriously.

That operator did. Not the whole 911 service.
