Description

This investigation is a continuation of the original story which exposed problems with Virginia Beach's volunteer rescue service. After a 10-month investigation, reporters found that only 60 percent of patients received help within six minutes. The volunteer service is also overworked and understaffed, and, in many cases, rescues were slow because crews got lost trying to find the neighborhoods.
