TEXTING 911-VO IN PLASMA-CG-GRX IN PLASMA-VO


THIS MORNING NBC-2 IS WORKING TO ANSWER QUESTIONS SOME OF OUR VIEWERS HAVE --- AFTER HEARING ABOUT THE FIRST 9-1-1 *TEXT MESSAGE THAT JUST SAVED A LIFE.

DEREK POSTED THIS TO OUR NBC-2 FACEBOOK PAGE:

" IF YOU SEND A TEXT SAYING "HELP ME" TO 911. AND THEN YOU SEND ANOTHER TEXT TO 911 EXPLAINING YOUR SITUATION. DOES THAT SECOND TEXT GO TO THE EXACT SAME PERSON IN DISPATCH THAT THE FIRST TEXT WENT TO SAYING HELP ME ?"

THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION DEREK, AND WE'RE WORKING TO FIND OUT IF THE SAME DISPATCHER WILL GET IT.

NBC-2 DID SOME DIGGING AND ACCORDING TO THE COLLIER COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE, IT IS IMPERATIVE TO PROVIDE ALL THE INFORMATION YOU CAN IN THE FIRST TEXT MESSAGE, BECAUSE THEY CAN'T RECEIVE LOCATION INFORMATION.

JUST LAST WEEK, A COLLIER WOMaN TEXTED "HELP ME" TO 911. THE FIRST 9-1-1 TEXT SINCE ROLLING OUT THE PROGRAM LAST MONTH.

DISPATCHERS SAY THE WOMAN CALLED 9-1-1 BUT COULDN'T SPEAK.

THEY CALLED BACK -- HEARD MOANING AND THEN SAW HER 9-1-1 TEXT. Return to index of stories...

WOMEN HEART ATTACKS-PLASMA-TRX-CG-PLASMA


ALL NEW IN THIS MORNING'S HEALTHCAST ---

A NEW STUDY SHOWS HEART ATTACKS CAN BE DEADLIEST FOR YOUNG WOMEN.

RESEARCHERS FOUND THAT NOT ONLY WERE YOUNG WOMEN MORE LIKELY TO BE SICKER THAN YOUNG MEN ONCE THEY ARRIVED AT A HOSPITAL - THEY WERE ALSO MORE LIKELY TO DIE THERE.

YALE RESEARCHERS TRACKED WOMEN AGES 30 TO 54. AND SAY THE POINT HERE IS NOT TO IGNORE SYMPTOMS THAT COULD SUGGEST A HEART ATTACK.

LIKE CHEST PAIN, SHORTNESS OF BREATH, FATIGUE AND NAUSEA.

RESEARCHERS SAY ALL OF THESE THINGS LEAD TO A DELAY IN RECOGNIZING SYMPTOMS, A DELAYED DIAGNOSIS, AND A DELAY IN TREATMENT STRATEGIES BECAUSE WOMEN ARE COMING IN TO THE HOSPITAL LATER. Return to index of stories...
