Description

A single death. A single 911 call. Together they reveal a nationwide problem: roughly half of all cell phone calls to 911 don't allow dispatchers to see the callers' location. Continuing our coverage over 10 major broadcast stories, a 30 minute primetime special, and a national USA Today article, we exposed this major public safety crisis and held the powerful accountable. Now the problem is getting fixed, and saving lives. NOTE: This story was primarily MMJ, produced by the reporter working alone as photographer and editor. https://youtu.be/XW7_pFKEDKc http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/02/22/cellphone-911-lack-location-data/23570499/ http://www.11alive.com/story/news/local/investigations/2015/01/31/911-location-problems-/22645139/
