And don't forget THE DRIVE AT FIVE...an hour of commercial free music as you head home for the day, plus the traffic information you need.
A New York City fire department EMT dispatcher stayed on the phone with a stroke victim for eight hours as rescuers tried to pinpoint where the distressed and slurring woman had fallen. The dispatcher stayed on the line with the stroke victim, Mary Thomas, as rescue workers went to the location they believed Thomas was at, based on a cell phone tower that received her call. But she wasn't there. Rescuers then filed through all the people living in Manhattan with the same name as Thomas, who was identified by caller ID. Unfortunately, Thomas was a housekeeper working in Manhattan, and didn't actually live in the apartment where she had a stroke. Verizon workers were finally able to exactly pinpoint Thomas's location eight hours after the call had begun. Thomas is now at a hospital in the Intensive Care Unit.
