PITTSBURGH (AP) — A 911 center employee has been fired for giving the media copies of a call made by a Pennsylvania woman who police say forcibly submerged two of her children underwater, drowning one and causing fatal injury to the other.
Allegheny County Emergency Services Chief Alvin Henderson says the unidentified employee was terminated Friday because policies prohibit disclosing 911 calls or transcripts.READ MORE: Local Police Departments Team Up To Enforce Pedestrian Traffic Laws
