Emergency dispatch, what went wrong?

Death Of 'NY Times' Reporter Still Inspires Questions Two Months Later

NEW YORK Exactly two months after veteran New York Times reporter David Rosenbaum was robbed and beaten in an attack that led to his death, questions remain about the care he received from emergency response workers in Washington, D.C.

But it is not just Rosenbaum's family looking for answers. At least two prominent journalists have written in the past few days about why Rosenbaum, struck in the head on the night of Jan. 6 and found bleeding and vomiting, was not given immediate medical priority, was not taken to the closest hospital, and was reportedly left on a hospital gurney for an hour before receiving attention.
