WASHINGTON (AP) - A District of Columbia fire lieutenant who was in charge of a station when no one went to help a dying man across the street will go before a trial board.

Medric Cecil Mills Jr. went into cardiac arrest in a parking lot across from a fire station on Jan. 25. According to an internal report, five firefighters inside the station were aware that someone needed help, but none provided any aid. Ultimately, a police officer flagged down a passing ambulance, and Mills later died at a hospital.

Lt. Kellene Davis will appear at an internal hearing on Wednesday to face possible discipline for her role in the incident. The department has said she didn’t respond when she became aware that people had approached the station and asked for help.
