When Amanda Berry escaped from a decade of captivity on Monday night, her first act was to call 911 and beg for help from authorities. But the actions of the 911 call-taker, who hung up on Ms. Berry before police arrived, are now under investigation.
“Please be assured that this matter will be investigated, and if necessary, appropriate corrective action taken,” said Martin L. Flask, director of Cleveland’s Department of Public Safety.
"We have noted some concerns which will be the focus of our review, including the call-taker's failure to remain on the line with Ms. Berry until police arrived on scene," Martin L. Flask, director of Cleveland's Department of Public Safety, said in a statement. "Please be assured that this matter will be investigated, and if necessary, appropriate corrective action taken."
